Spokane, Washington - 01-17-13
A couple of weeks ago on Thursday the 17th, I was driving home from Spokane Washington with a client of mine.
It was about 4:30 pm at near dark, but the sky still had the dark pinks/salmon colors.
Maybe 15 miles out from Spokane
as we were headed towards Sprague and Ritzville, my client and I noticed six blinking white lights moving from left to
right across the sky in a 'follow the leader pattern.'
The speed of these objects was like that of a plane, but they were
strobing too fast for this to be the case, in my opinion. After a couple of minutes of watching these lights moving to the
left of the sky, the last light on the tail end of the group reversed and went the opposite direction at the same speed.
Meanwhile, the other 5 objects vanished off to the left side, but unsure if it was because of entering the clouds or simply
disappearing. The final object moving to the right just continued its course, but I couldn't follow it anymore as I was driving
out of sight of it.
I know that many other drivers would have seen these also, so Iíve been wondering if anyone else decided
to report it.
