Shape: Light
Duration: 1 minute
Two lights seen moving rapidly towards each other, they crossed paths before losing sight of them

We were driving eastbound on Ballinger Way in Shoreline. My wife was driving the car, I was sitting in the front seat. The moon was full and I glanced up to look at it. I saw two lights, one approaching approximately from the north, one from straight up, moving on a path towards each other. There were no flashing lights as might be seen on a commercial aircraft. They seemed to be a good distance away. However, they were moving about as fast as you might see a commercial jet moving overhead. They looked like white lights, small, punctate. I thought at first that they might be commercial airliners, but again, there were no flashing lights visible. Given the apparent distance, they were moving too fast for commercial airliners. The two dots crossed paths at about the same time that we turned the corner. I told my wife but she couldn't look up to see until it was too late. We went around the block to see if they were still visible. They were not, but I did see a commercial airliner moving in a northerly direction. It had flashing lights.
