|2 orange lights split into 4 then back into 2 before going seprate directions followed by 2 fighter jets taking off.
Approximately 11pm. I noticed 2 orange lights came from the west (in a normally traveled commercial airline route).
The 2 lights stoped side by side. Split into 4 orange lights all arranged in the way that you would see the number 4 on a dise.
It stayed that way a few minutes then the top left light went into the bottom right and the top right light went to the bottom left becoming 2 lights again.
they stayed like that for 2 to 3 minutes then 1 shot up @45° angle and gone while the remaining orange light slowly headed west and over the over the horizon.
Seconds later 2 jets took off out of McChord Air Force Base of Joint Base Lewis, off in that direction.
All this was within a 20 min time span.
Commercial aircraft could then be seen at its normal intervals of 20 minutes or so.
