Multiple circular UFO sighting in the sky above Edmonds, WA witnessed by police officer and police explorers.

Myself (18 yrs old), several teens, and one police officer witnessed the following event at approx 2:30 am while doing overnight security for the Edmonds Art Festival in the summer of 1996. I recall everyone gathered above the top of the Edmonds Library for a quick break and re-assignment when one of us spotted 3 flashing lights in the sky above Puget Sound. All of us stopped talking and were in shock to notice these circular white and red lights make triangle formations in the sky. They appeared to be playing and chased each other at rapid and then slow speeds to re-group. At one point, they disappeared into the night sky and then came back to spin/zip around. Eventually, a 4th one came down and then they disappeared by fading so high into the sky we could no longer see them after 15min or so. Some of the teens cried and went home. The police officer who was there literally got teary-eyed from fear and asked that we not ever speak of what we witnesse! d that night because he promised to deny it, and advised people to leave. I was an adult and we were all police explorers doing a security detail for the community artists and vendors. Some of us still speak of that night, but we know people who weren't there think we're nuts and all made it up... I wish I could say it was make believe, but it wasn't.
