Ball of light had bow tie shaped babies, That went over oil refinery. The babies retured to ball and it disappeared.

We are 60 year old seniors who were eating at the indian casino because of the cheap meal. ( We take high blood pressure medication and so never drink) When we left the Casino to get in our car, we saw a glowing ball the size of a basketball floating in and out of the clouds over the water by cherry point. We watched it for a time, and suddenly the ball no longer had any cloud covering. It glowed, and then out of the ball came seven small bow tie shapes that flew around the ball and then flew over the cherry point oil refinery. The bow ties were small about 1/20 of the size of the main ball of light. The bow ties then returned to the ball of light and the ball simply disapeared.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness means a date of January 17, 2002. We will attempt to verify the date. She indicates that date is approximate. PD))
