Duration:10-20 minutes
About six consecutive brought orange lights moving slowly across sky following each other.

I'm a nanny in Tumwater and was working until midnight. I had just got both kids to sleep around 9:30 pm and one of the two dogs acted like he needed out. I took him out and he just looked around and growled and didn't seem to need to go potty.

I sent him back in because I didn't want him running after anyone.

As I went to go inside myself, I noticed two bright orange lights in the sky. It looked similar to how Venus and Jupiter have appeared recently but a lot brighter, or closer.

I stopped to look, my view was through some trees, and they were moving. Way slower than an airplane. They moved at the same pace. I watched until the first disappeared past my view behind tree branches. Then a third appeared following the second. Same speed… And about same distance apart.

After the second disappeared, it reappeared, coming back the way it came. Then as it got closer to the third light they both continued that direction (right to left from my view).

Two to three more followed, same speed, same direction. I watched until I couldn't see anymore. Didn't bother to go get my phone and try to video. I guess I didn't want to miss what I was seeing, and didn't think it would show up anyway... Wish I would've tried.

They all looked the same. I kept thinking there's no way that's airplanes. Then an airplane did fly overhead, and like i thought, it was traveling way faster and not as bright, with a blue and white, and maybe small red, flashing lights, and I heard it. I couldn't hear the "craft." But they weren't directly overhead either. They were bright orange, seemed to sparkle or flash various colors maybe, similar to how the planet's look in the sky far away...

First time I've ever seen it.

I saw a huge green meteorite one time on an early trip to the airport, but that was definitely a meteor after searching info :)

Thanks for this page to document sightings!
