12 large bright red spheres line up low in the sky and travel slowly across the Midnight sky towards Canada.

This report is what my cousin told me today she witnessed last night.

Port Angeles, WA - UFO Sighting, July 4, 2012, Midnight, stars out, no clouds, no wind.

I was standing on my back deck looking South (towards the Olympic Mountains) at a neighbor’s fireworks when something caught my eye and I looked a little East where I saw 2 red spheres above the tree line and below the mountains’ ridgelines. There were no stars behind the spheres. The balls were uniform in their brightness and color. They did not emit an aura. They were simply red lights each about the size of a basketball I would hold in my hands.

Identical spheres kept appearing one right after another at a regular pace until I could see 12 altogether. I heard no sounds other than the few remaining fireworks going off. All 12 spheres were equally spaced in a straight line moving slowly to the North. After about 3 minutes the 2nd and 3rd sphere moved out of line forming a triangle with the 1st one staying in the lead. The remaining 9 stayed in the same straight line behind the triangle and did not decrease or increase their distance from one another.

I went in to get my roommate so she could see this too. By the time we got back to the porch we saw the last two leave our field of vision at what I judge to be over the Strait of Juan de Fuca. This whole sighting lasted about 5 minutes and at no time did I have to tilt my head to watch the progress of these red balls in the night sky.

Afterward I went to the internet to see if any information might be there to help explain what I had just seen. I was shocked at the quantity of reports. Both my roommate and I are senior citizens who do not regularly pay attention to this sort of thing. The following is a video link I found that is almost identical to what I saw except that the balls of red light I witnessed were much, much larger. Other than that there are some very minor differences between this video and what I have reported here. I am comforted by knowing that someone else has witnessed these red balls too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc2ppoJIexY
