|Flashing and red lights "dancing" and "looping" in the night sky.
I saw what appeared to be a large plane flying sideways with several flashing lights. However, with the different flashes, it appeared that there was possibly three levels to what I was looking at. I watched the craft for a while, and then I saw several red lights dropping from it, two at a time. The red lights would then swirl up, loop and zig zag around in the sky, turning white after a period of five minutes. I called the police station and asked if any odd lights had been seen over East Wenatchee (My view was in Wenatchee, WA looking East), and nothing had been called in.
I saw the same thing happen about a half hour later, but farther to the north, and higher in the sky.
I also noticed, as I had the morning before, what looked like a binary (I think that's how it's spelled) star which was also doing something odd. It was slowly moving higher in the sky from the north and moving west to east. When the sun began rising, it was difficult to see the smaller white lights dancing around, however I did notice that they moved closer to this "binary star" and began swarming around it like fireflies, winking in and out. The whole thing lasted for an hour, maybe a little longer, and I watched it all from the drive way.
((NUFORC Note: Probably a twinkling star?? PD))
