Location: Kirkland, WA
Shape: Sphere
Duration:10 minutes
3 different colored round objects moving at different speeds and different directions mid afternoon.

My wife and I were laying in our backyard on towels looking up at the sky. We both saw a sphere, silver colored hovering at approx. 50,000 to 70,000 feet. Below the very high cloud cover. I went and got 2 sets of binoculars for us to see better. We had a stationary tree as a reference point. In the binoculars we could see it was round, silver and moving slowly west. Then a smaller light, could only make out it was shining in the light, a glistening spec, blinked in slowly next to it. The larger sphere always moved slowly west. Thought it may have been a weather balloon. The smaller one moved from above the sphere to below it, around it and then to the east. The sphere moved with the clouds west. It seemed as if the small light was moving around the sphere in several different directions at different speeds. Then a red sphere appeared in the field. So now 3 objects are visible all next to each other. The small light moved southeast and blinked out. The red smaller sphere moved away to the east and blinked out as the original siver sphere continued moving west until it was out of vision to the horizon. These objects were very high up. Very small even with the binoculars. I assumed the two smaller objects that blinked out moved behind the cloud cover, which at that time was about 50,000 to 70,000 feet.

It appeard as if the two smaller ones were examining the larger silver sphere, then they lost interest and left. We both saw the same thing at the same time. I am an electrical engineer and it was the oddest thing I have ever seen in the sky. It was not a plane.
