7-10 bright orange orbs flying past Space Needle Saturday, March 23 10:33pm

Saturday, March 23, 2013 at 10:30 pm I was sitting in my car on Queen Anne Hill in Seattle, WA. I was facing south, with a great view of Downtown and the Space Needle.

At 10:34 I saw 7 or 8 bright orange orbs float upward from left to right seemingly from Capitol Hill or First Hill. They continued to float/fly up behind the Space Needle heading from east to west. Some seemed to head south, and some seemed to head north before disappearing into the clouds.

They appeared to move as fast as a small airplane or helicopter. Seeing them fly across the sky and disappear into the clouds took about 3 or 4 minutes. 3 or 4 of these orange orbs were brighter than the rest. They had a soft flickering quality. They also appeared at first to be in a cluster, and then flew away from each other in a more perpendicular line while flying upwards. Although the line was by no means perfectly straight.

I sent a friend a text to ask if he had seen the bright orange orbs flying past the Space Needle. He said no. At 10:54 pm another orange orb popped out of the sky over Capitol Hill or First Hill and flew upwards from left to right. I told my friend to look out his window at, what I called, the loner orb. He saw it and we watched it for about 5 minutes. This one flew up west and north. Finally, another lone orb appeared at 11:39 following the same flight pattern as the orb before it.

After that I went home. I have wondered why there haven’t been more reports of this sighting. It was a beautiful Saturday night. I know there must have been people at Kerry Park that night seeing the same thing I saw. Please report what you saw!
