Hello, me and my friend stepped outside after the New Years count down last night and saw something very bizarre.
It was over cast sky last night and no other lights, stars, planets etc., could be seen. We where in Gordon Head it was 12:15 a.m. on January 1, 2013.
There was a orange/red light that came into view from behind a big oak tree that was moving on a horizontal flight path north east to south west heading for Washington State directly over the Straight Of Jaun De Fuca.
There was no noise of any kind that we could hear. The object was travelling at a constant velocity and then began to slow down and stop completely. After a time period of no more than 60 seconds the light proceeded to fade away completely.
Me and my friend then had a 30 second conversation trying to figure out what the object was that we just witnessed. The light resembled a sodium vapored street lamp and had no strobing effect as a commercial commuter plane would.
This traveling light in the sky by itself probed our curiosity, but what happened next has left us quite confused.
A second object emitting the same amount of light, became visible in the tree line. This object was on an identical flight path, and possessed the exact same velocity as the first object.
It mimicked the flight path of the first sighting and came to rest in the same section of sky as the first object. It then began to fade away behaving identically to the first object. Then this happened for a third time. We made identical observations every time.
The light would come into view from being blocked by the tree we where standing beside, stop at the exact same spot, and then fade out.
My theory is that this could have been a plane that was traveling in a circular flight path following co-ordinates form a GPS and that would explain why we witnessed identical flight paths. Still, that wouldn’t explain why it stopped and behaved the way it did.
Planes don’t stop suddenly and proceed to fade into the distance. I am not sure if the objects physically faded away, or travelled in the direction exactly opposite to us which might have created the illusion of fading out or crossing over into the cover of the clouds.
Weather the object travelled away from us or faded physically is something that
I am not 100% sure of.
Planes don’t act like this, low orbiting satellites don’t act like this, fireworks form a new years celebration don’t act like this and could not explain what we saw. I have cellphone video of the second and third objects but it is hard to see the movement relative to the sky and ground but everything else is as described. ‘
This is the most bizarre thing I have ever witnessed in the night sky. Please email me back with any questions as I am as curious as you are.
If you have seen anything like this in the same area please be kind enough to contact Brian Vike at: email@example.com with the details of your sighting. All personal information is kept confidential.
Also, please feel free to send in your sightings that have happened years ago. So many of these older sightings are nothing short of amazing.
