Location: Bothell, WA
Shape: Triangle
2objects with 3 lights in triangle shape moving very slowly at a high altitutde.

Me and a coupple of my friends were at work, when one of us went out back to take care of the trash. Because we work in a shoping complex we have other stores to our right and left. When my coworker went out back a cavilian who was using the laundry mat next door and came out back to take a break. The cavilian noticed the formation and pointed them out to my coworker who promptly came to tell me and my other coworker. We all went out back to check this out because the sun is blocked by the buildings. We (12 of us because some more people came to see what the commotion was about) looked up and origonaly saw nothing untill we squinted and saw three lights in triangle formation. We then looked just barely south of it and saw three more lights in the same formation (a triangle formation). Both crafts were moving from South to North. It was hard to see because of the smog and dust from the local freeway, but no doubt this was the reall stuff. In all there was about 12 of us because more people came out to see what was going on. Hey, if you've seen something like this post a messege. This is cool and creapy at the same time.

((NUFORC Note: We believe the correct time of the sighting is 5:30 p.m.. Please see similar report from co-worker in Bothell, WA, who saw the same formation. Hot air balloons fly in the valley to the east of Bothell, typically during the late afternoon, when winds are relatively calm, but we have no idea whether that might have been the cause of the sighting.
