Camas, WA- multiple moving objects observed and filmed 4/19/05 (1:20-4:20a.m.).

The observers, a young married couple, mid-20's, witnessed a congregation of unknown craft, east of our home. Around 1:20 a.m. my wife noticed a star-like object swaying in the distance, through our bedroom window. It was extremely clear that evening and the moon was very bright (rare for Washington nights this time of year). We both got out of bed to get a closer look, when we noticed 3+ objects, all emitting what looked light red and green light. Not believing what we were seeing, several other craft came into view to the north of us. We witnessed strange and rapid movements, and light emissions.

After 10 minutes, I grabbed our video camera and started filming. We switched off, capturing 20-30 minutes of footage. We filmed interaction between the craft and obscure individual movement of 2-3 of them. Viewing the objects through the video lens allowed us to see much greater detail and some great close-ups were captured. One object was mainly filmed as it was the brightest and most prominent.

My wife believes she saw this same bright object the following night. However as she turned on the video camera and started to focus on it, the video camera shut off. She tried a second time, and the video camera shut off again. The bright object was in a different position in the sky, and this was an earlier time of night through a different window in the house. This is the 3rd night since our first sighting, and the sky is cloudy so we cannot see anything.

((NUFORC Note: We suspect the witnesses may have been looking at the star, Sirius, or perhaps some other "twinkling" star or celestial body. We spoke with the witness, and he sounded quite sincere, but he witnessed the same object several days later. He stated that he recently moved to Washington from Los Angeles, where the residents rarely see the night sky clearly. PD))
