Location: Maltby, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:10 minutes
A very bright white light moved in straight lines, and stopped repeatedly. Red and blue lights flashed on its bottom side.

My daughter, husband and I went outside on the east side of our house to talk to the neighbor lady. A very bright light (seemed larger and brighter than the stars) caught my eye through the tree boughs. It stayed very still for approx. 1 minute, then it would move in a straight line and stop. It would stay still again for about 45-60 seconds, and move in a radical direction, and then stay still again. We also saw what looked like red and blue flashing lights on the bottom of it. At first I thought it was a helicopter, but it was much too high, and the movement didn't seem typical for a helicopter. From our house in Clearview (southern Snohomish)we were facing southeast (in the direction of Maltby.)It was fairly easy to see the way it moved relative to where the tree boughs were. We noticed 3 other aircraft flying toward it, but it was difficult to tell if they were chasing it.
