Location: Edmonds, WA
Shape: Light
Duration: 5 minutes
Stationary bright light at approximately 2000 feet which split into two lights and disappeared.

I observed a very bright light almost directly above my house. It was stationary for approximately three to four minutes at an estimated altitude of two thousand feet. It was sporadically partially obscured by clouds which were moving rapidly from south to north. There was no sound. After three or four minutes the light dimmed and split into two lights aligned north and south which slowly moved apart for a few seconds until they were approximately a thumbnail apart at which point they disappeared.

I am a retired engineer and scientist in the field of measurement science.
