Seattle, Washington - 06-18-13

I was at home and went out to my front porch to smoke after a 1 1/2 hr. nap. The sky was very clear, as it had rained earlier and all the stars were out.

Iím a stargazer and in Seattle the opportunities to gaze are fewer. I was orienting myself to the 3:00 am sky from how I saw it earlier. I was facing west over the top of my house.

I saw several random spark-like flashes in the sky. I have previously seen high flying jets which had intermittent strobe flashes, but there were no jets in this case.

I also saw what looked like the whole sky flashing as if there were lightning storms out of sight, but where I was, there were no clouds.

I stared at what I thought was a planet about 10 degrees above my chimney; Jupiter like in size thinking what planet is that?

After 3 or 4 seconds it suddenly took off heading south. I was astonished! As I followed it, it slowed way down, almost stopping, changed direction upward, and then became dimmer star-like and continued south.

Watching it change directions gave me a rush of Goosebumps. I was able to follow it visually for close to 15 seconds, until I lost sight behind trees. While I was watching it, I became aware of a bright, (again what I thought was a planet, light through holes in the tree foliage in my left peripheral vision.

After losing sight of the first object, I trained my attention to this object only to realize that it was also moving, and going toward the one I had just lost sight of.

It was travelling east to west, and just like the first one, it was Jupiter-like in size. I ran out into my yard to keep it in view. After 4 or 5 seconds, it went from bright to dim and continued west, being in view for approx. 12 seconds. I went in to note the time and grab my binoculars.

I stood out in the yard watching. The Big Dipper was low in the northwest sky.

Suddenly I saw a bright flash south of the Big Dipper and saw an object travelling north toward the Dipper. I saw another like object coming toward it at an angle very fast, then slowing and matching the first ones speed and direction.

When the second one slowed down it emitted a brilliant red-orange flash. They travelled along and then through the stars making up the handle of the Big Dipper.

I watched for some 25 seconds with binoculars until they both dimmed out of sight due to distance.

I saw a number, maybe 4 or 5 random spark-like flashes in the sky, and called it quits when clouds began to move in. The sky was lightening towards the dawn.
