Two orange sun dogs near horizon seen from Edmonds looking west

On Saturday June 29, 9 PM a group of us saw 2 orange lights near the horizon against a sun that had either just set or had gone behind clouds. I'm certain that they were sun dogs, but thought it would be interesting to file this report as the other people I was with were completely stumped and were guessing stars, planets, planes, ufos. Here is what the sun dogs looked like: They were about a quarter inch in length, slightly cylindrical and vertical. They were kind of like orange paint daubs on a canvas and they stood out well from the orange sky behind them. Anyway, if anyone else reports the same thing, it might be interesting to compare the reports.

((NUFORC Note: We know this witness, and know her to be an exceptionally cautious observer, with a great deal of technical training and experience. PD))
