Duration:10 minutes
Three high flying, slow moving objects holding formation during the daytime on a clear blue Sunday afternoon.

My son and I had just gone for a bike ride around Greenlake in North Seattle because it was a very nice, clear afternoon. When we returned home a little before 6:00 PM, we were laying in the grass in the front yard looking up at the blue sky and noticed an faint object very high in the sky that was moving north to south at a slow speed. It had the appearance of a white point of light, like a satellite, but it was during the daytime. It appeared to be too high to be a commercial aircraft and it was moving too slow. I thought it might be a satellite also because it appeared to almost drift at times, but then I noted it would make sudden bursting movements.

After a few minutes, my son noticed another object and it appeared the two objects were approaching each other. At that time, I called my wife and daughter outside and they could see the two objects as well. Eventually, the two objects came so close together they seemed to briefly merge. The two objects then separated and that’s when we saw the third object, but not before I saw a streak of light that resembled a faint meteor, streak near the objects.

The three objects then held a tight triangular formation for a few minutes until their luminosity faded to the point where we couldn’t see them anymore. Afterwards, we all discussed what we saw and we all agreed we saw the same thing. This sighting was during broad daylight but one would have had to be looking straight up at the sky to see it, and even then you would have had to be focusing fairly intently to see and track the objects.


Mr. Davenport -

The objects were too far/faint to show up with the cell phone camera. We tried with multiple devices but they just were not seen with the camera. I would provide the information I provided you to the local media if they were interested. But without video or pictures, I am not sure they would be interested.

Thank you,
