Posted: 7/23/2003
Location: Vancouver, WA
Shape: Rectangle
Duration: 15-20 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
we saw three unusual objects zig-zag overhead in a way we had never seen any aircraft manover before

At approximatly 10:40 pm July 18, 03, as we sat in the hot tub, we observed 3 objects apporach from a southernly direction, directly over head, traveling at a consant speed and at what appeared to be an altitude in which a small aircraft would fly. The objects appeared as a shadow in the sky and perhaps the size of a small plane but did have some allumination but not brightly lit. They seemed to be rectangular in shape but hard to say for sure because of the darkness. It appeared that we were looking at the underbelly of the craft as they headed in a north westerly direction. There was no sound of any kind. The most unusual observation was the manner in which they moved. They zig-zaged and criss-crossed in a way we had never seen any aircraft manover before. As they moved further away into the distance they appeared as a bright light, continued to zig-zag then disappeared in the horizon.

I am a small business owner and resident of Vancouver Wa. for 20 years and ((deleted--second witness)) is an ex navy man also long time Vancouver resident. We are both 50 years old and feel like what we saw was out of the ordinary and unexplainable.
