Duration:10 minutes
Bird/animal disturbance in the trees. 30 clear orbs rose up slowly. Then once at high elevation, flew around doing maneuvers.

@ approximately 5:30pm, Friday, August 30th, Tacoma  WA, the following occurred.

- A loud sound of birds chattering in the tall pines caused me to investigate my home backyard.

Upon stepping out to see why, the group of maybe 100+ birds got even louder. Almost like the sound of a loud creek or river.

As I walked up to examine why, Many orbs ascended slowly out of the tops of the trees.

They were *very* close and I could see them well.

Each orb was about the size of a soccer ball. Every sphere resembled a soap bubble, except they were all perfectly uniform, perfectly sphere, crystal clear.

As the swarm rose higher, the group of about 30 orbs began to form two seperate clusters.

They then became either much more reflective of the sun at a higher altitude, or, they possibly began to emit their own bioluminescence or possibly mechanical light; as they became much brighter as opposed to translucent.

Once they had achieved an altitude at about twice the height a drone would fly, the objects then began doing 'maneuvers', and forming geometric shapes and patterns such as triangles, 90°angles etc.

By the time myself and a second witness ran inside to grab a better camera and return, the sighting was over.
