Duration:5 minutes
A red fireball stopped traffic in Cumberland/Enumclaw, WA.

They were just here! This is a personal report...about 20 minutes ago coming back from town..we are in the country...there was about 5 planes circling all over the area...WE SAW A HUGE RED BALL...people pulled off the road and watched! I kept driving to try and follow it. It was not moving for a long time until the planes came in ...I kept flashing my hi-beams at it and it came very close to us! Then it left somewhere to the east...It looked like it was landing somewhere...as it was decending and I lost sight of it in the trees! My daughter was with me and my husband was in another vehicle. He saw it too...we went looking for it but couldn't find it! Too awesome! Damn I wanted to see them! This was as we were driving out of Enumclaw, WA into the country towards an area here that is a state park called Nolte State Park and where I live. I could see this red glow in the distance. I told my daughter to look.

She,(((name deleted)) is 6 Years old), did and then she started pointing the planes out to me that were coming into the area, about 5 or 6 of them. I was driving in the direction the red glow was...the closer I got the bigger it got of course...I was so excited.

I was traveling north and when I first saw it it was straight ahead a little to my left or a tad NW. It traveled from West to East into the Cascade foothills.

The planes were government planes...I have been watching them for three years now circling this area. And this is not the first time that I have seen these red balls...I also saw a very, very huge green florescent one here too. Anyway these planes are also silent and can do some real fancy manuvers like a helicopter can! (My son and I saw a plane like this chase another mulitcolored UFO at another time.) Well this time the planes came in from all directions but kept their distance somewhat, not chasing really, kinda of like just looking...but they had to see us watching and my beams blinking like crazy! When they got closer and I was flashing my hi-beams the ball came in closer to my spot on the road but I lost it behind the trees...the planes were gone too...a few minutes later I saw another three planes looking around...so I don't know what happened to it.

The ball was also silent and it just looked like the red glow of a stop light only fuzzier...and It was big! If you hold your arm out fully extended and have your thumb up, it was the size of your thumbnail. That was how it appeared at the time just before it started its descent(?)... but my husband was a minute behind me and he saw it more in the east and it was about double the size of the usual plane lights he said.
