Reported: 7/29/2003 11:34:03 PM 23:34
Posted: 8/1/2003
Location: Lynnwood, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration: 2-3 minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Two lights moving rapidly, changing distance from each other and one disappearing & reappearing.

As I sat on my deck I saw what I thought were 2 lights on an airplane, they were accross from each other flying accross the sky. They were not shooting stars. One kept disappearing then reappearing. As I watched, one went behind the other then their distance doubled. They were steady lights, white in color. Except for the one that continued to disappear and re-appear. The were as though one chasing the other. I lost sight as they went past the building. They looked the size of the stars visible in the sky but moved faster than an airplane does. I later saw an airplane and realized that they flew much higher and that a plane has blinking and solid lights. This was definately an anomali I have never witnessed before.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witness may have observed satellites moving across the night sky. The intermittent light may have been a rocket shell, tumbling as it moved in orbit around the Earth. PD))
