Location: Port Hadlock, WA
Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes & continuing
Three orange lights forming an inverted triangle, no movement, no sound.

I had gone outside later in the evening to view Betelgeuse, which was nearing the horizon and whose scintillations are quite lovely, as it glints in all colors. Above Betelgeuse were Castor and Pollux, and in the space between them I noticed an red-colored light, star-like in appearance but not twinkling. Soon it was joined by an identical second light source and then a third, the three of therm forming an inverted isosceles triangle that persisted for several minutes.

I wondered if it were a reflection of headlights or other artificial light source, but there was nothing in the sky that would present a suitable reflecting surface. The objects appeared to be getting nearer and brighter and then assumed a globular shape as opposed to pinpoints as observed earlier. Their color also changed from red to amber.

No sound was apparent. I went inside to grab a star map, but the objects had vanished during my absence.
