V-Formation over West Seattle

It was approximately 8:30 PM in the Alaska Junction area of West Seattle. I was home, just looking out the window at the northwest section of the night sky, when a large v-shaped formation of 7 round white lights came into view, slowly moving south. The formation seemed to be at the same altitude commercial jets use when they fly.

It definitely got my attention, since I didn't think any pilots (military or civilian) would be flying at night in close formation like the Blue Angels. The v-formation appeared almost vertical, poised to gain altitude quickly. Each of the round lights seemed larger than regular aircraft lights, looking more like spotlights instead. Also, even though the lights were bright, I couldn't see any outline of a craft.

To my complete amazement, the whole v-formation appeared to come to a complete stop, and then all 7 lights started blinking and moving irraticly in and out of formation. This went on for almost 10 seconds. Amazed by what I was seeing, I jumped up to get a better look, but just as I did so, the lights went back into v-formation and flew over my house, continuing south.

I quickly ran to look out a window on the south side of the house to see it emerge, but there was nothing there. It seemed as if the whole v-formation just disappeared, or went straight up into space. Very strange, very ufo.
