Two spheres of light observed dancing in the sky near Port Angeles, WA.

Last week, my boyfriend and I were on an Alaskan cruise. We are both in our mid-20s, college graduates, work regular jobs, have NO experience with UFOS or aliens.

While travelling back to port at Seattle from Victoria, BC, we happened to notice a meteor shower during the late evening of August 12th. We ended up watching this meteor shower for several hours. The meteors were amazing, ranging in many sizes and colors. Around 1:40am (now Friday the 13th), my boyfriend noticed something unusual in the sky.

He saw two uniform spheres of light appear in the sky, move in a figure 8 motion, and then disappear. He quickly tried to explain this to me in his bewildered state, but within a few seconds these two lights appeared in the sky again and we both saw them. The spheres were always equidistant apart, as if they were attached by some invisible pole, and danced around each other very quickly and sharply.

The lights moved in a zig zag pattern, back and forth for abo! ut 5 seconds before flying a straight path over the ship and we could no longer see them from our balcony. The lights were a little larger in comparison to the stars and seemed to appear from mid air in the sky.

We sat in shock for a very long time, trying to come up with a logical explanation, and hoping to see them again. These lights were absolutely not meteors, they moved in several different directions and left no light tail, and they were solid white lights, no blinking or shimmering.

We also thought that possible the military was trying some new type of aircraft, maybe a new invisible plane and all we could see were the two lights on it? But there was no sound, and with the speed these lights were traveling I’d expect a very loud rocket sound.

So my theory is now that these lights were either one or two UFOs, maybe aliens use meteor showers to hide their arrivals? I would definitely love to know if there is a logical explanation, I don’t think I will ever stop wondering what we saw and it may just drive me crazy!

This was seen while we were in the Strait of Juan Fuca/Clallam Bay near Port Angeles.


Hello Peter,

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly! I will definitely have my boyfriend prepare his own independent statement. Its just absolutely unbelievable, I never expected to see a UFO in my entire life. Half of me still thinks there is no way I could have seen a UFO and there has to be some explanation, but the other half knows that there is nothing on Earth I know of that moves like that, and there is no way we both could have imagined seeing the exact same thing. To be honest, I feel a little crazy. I've always believed in other life, its bogus to think that we are the only living planet in an unimaginably vast galaxy, I guess I just never expected to see for myself. Either way, it was a once in a lifetime experience and I would definitely welcome another! I will have my boyfriend, Eyad, submit his report though the web form. Thank you again for contacting me!



Hello Peter,

You can definitely use my additional comments. I will also try to create an illustration, Im creatively and artistically challenged, but will do my best!
