Location: Monroe, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 minutes
8 to 10 fire "orbs."

We were driving home heading east on Old Snohomish-Monroe just west of Lord Hill Regional Park.

About 5 miles west of Monroe, WA. around 11:30pm on 7/20/2012 we witnessed a formation of small fire orbs (8-10 in total) ascending into the sky. The objects made no sounds and, and appeared to be intelligently controlled. The orbs flickered in luminosity. and conformed to a semi-line formation. They appeared as if they were following each other to the same point in the sky and just disappeared.

I completely stopped the car and looked at the tailing object. It appeared to be no more than 500 yards from us; but I can't say with absolute certainty that distance is correct. It was dark outside, and there isn't a whole lot of residual light in that area, so landmarks are hard to make out.

I've never seen anything like this before. I've read about it many time on this site, but never thought I would witness something like this. I constantly watch the skies for peculiar objects, and I can finally say I've seen something.

Thanks for reading.
