|Solid red light with blue-white strobe zig zags acorss the sky
I was walking my dog this evening when I noticed a red light in the sky overhead. It didn’t appear to be moving. I found that odd, so we stopped to observe.
After a few seconds it moved to the east. Ok, I thought, probably a helicopter. I continued to watch because I don’t remember seeing a static red light in the sky before.
The craft then made a 90 degree maneuver very quickly and then continued to move east. At this point I noticed a blue white strobe at the front of the craft.
As I watched this craft move east it would stop entirely, change directions, and then continue to head east toward Lake Washington. It appeared to be zig-zagging, doing course corrections with very fast and tight moves.
I thought perhaps it was a drone, or maybe still a helicopter, but I have never seen anything maneuver like that, stop cold and then continue to move again.
I think the craft was about 1500 feet in the air, and it was moving about the speed of a helicopter, though it would accelerate and then slow down again. All I saw were the lights, no fuselage.
The moon was full and very bright, but this was very easy to see.
