|3 blue horizontal lights off the coast of Seaside (Gearhart)
Since we do not have many clear nights during this time of year on the coast, I took my time to walk up my driveway. As I approached my home I noticed 3 blue circles off the horizon (west). They were faint but you could see them. They were lined up (in my opinion) perfectly horizontal.
At first I could've sworn they were just stars, but they were too big and too close. Then I didn't see any aircraft strobe lights blinking on them either.
I asked my friend if she could see what I was seeing, and she replied "yes and that's really scary". We stood there looking at them for a moment, and they just seemed to hover. My view was somewhat obstructed by treetops, but could still see them.
I don't know what I saw, but I do know that it was not normal. They were off the Pacific Ocean, I am 3/4 of mile inland from the beach.
After reading a recent report in the Yakima Herald (4/13/11) with a similar sighting, I felt I needed to report this.
I am a 33 year old male, I'v! e worked in the airline industry so I have some idea of what's out there at night and what to look for.
((NUFORC Note: Witness indicates that the date of the sighting is approximate. PD))
