|Lights heading for a collision in the sky over Seattle
I recently moved to Seattle from New Mexico. It had been raining for four days straight when suddenly there was a break in the clouds. I decided to go outside on my balcony to enjoy the stars, since I miss the New Mexico night skies, and also smoke a cigarette.
As I was looking at the stars, I noticed a circular light, a little bigger than the size of a star in the sky, moving in a straight line above me from the north heading south. Out of the corner of my eye, I see another circular light, the same size as the first light, coming in from the right (west) perpendicular to the first light. At first they weren’t moving too fast but as the lights got closer to each other, the speed increased. It appeared as though they were heading for a collision at this point. I was sure they were going to hit and cause some sort of explosion but instead they began spinning around each other, making what looked like figure 8s.
This lasted only a few seconds before both light! s continued heading south parallel to each other(side by side). As the lights got further away, they began to slowly separate and disappeared into the clouds.
