Just before 10PM on 2/13/2014, I was working on my busted 97 jeep with a mechanic friend who just got off work. More like he was working on it, and I
was bringing him a hot coffee. As we stood there talking for a few minutes, I watched a plane from Seatac airport (Seattle) fly by. The commercial
airliner flies a straight line, heading NW toward Canada. I live nearly under the new "alternate" flight path, when the airport has overflow take
off and landings, they do it over my neighborhood, we are 4 miles flight from the runway.
As the plane is nearly out of view, a red object appears from the same spot the plane came from. I watch it, as it silently grows in size and
approaches us. I say, "That's not a plane!" to my friend, and he begins to watch. He says he saw an Orb the whole time, a possibly spinning orb. To
me, it initially appears diamond shaped, like a big triangle laying down. It is pointed nearly directly at my house. However as it got closer to us,
about 1 mile at it's closest point, from the side view it appears like a round orb, or a triangle spinning fast which simulates an orb effect. From
beginning to end, the colors are consistent. It is an intense luminous red, with orange streaks of plasma lightning running through it. The orange and
red displace each other every second or two, as the lightning streaks chaotically pulse around the craft. The pulse rate is slow and visible. It is
almost impossible to determine the actual size of the object. After reviewing all details, I presume it is smaller than the commercial airline it was
following. It is completely silent.
As the red craft was nearly out of sight, appearing to us for just as long as the plane, 25-30 seconds, there was another glow in the sky. Right in
line, another red craft appeared from on the horizon. I ran inside and got my Lumix GH3, which had a 1980's Olympus lens on it, with F1.7 huge
aperature to see things at night. However it has no zoom lens - I want to switch lenses, but there is no time to swap and remove the polarizer on my
14-140 zoom lens. I bolt back outside, and film the last 9 seconds of craft 2 as it slightly detours left from the Canadian plane route, and slightly
gains elevation to pop above the cloud wall that covers the entire sky. I would guess the cloud wall begin at 2,000 feet elevation (very rough guess).
It wasn't raining on us, but I think it was drizzling nearby, as I see water droplets falling from the clouds in the video when I contrast enhance.
The camera was hand-held, and manual focus. The first few seconds I am running from my house to the driveway, hence the wobble. Then I get a few
seconds of steady video, which I am editing for a cleaner view in Vegas 9/Cineform. The craft flew 100% straight, no visible turns including the
flight path deviation slightly West and Up at the end, taking them away from land (over the ocean) and sight. A 2nd plane flew by ending the
entourage, and I filmed that as it approached, realizing it would be a helpful reference in the same shot.
It was not a chinese lantern as has been suggested to me, because it had identical lateral thrust as a plane probably travelling at 200MPH, And it was
spinning, and too large. It could not have been any known human aircraft, because the lights were so bright. The only way I can imagine to modify a
human craft to appear this way, is if it had the equivalent of high def TV screens all over it, showing red/orange colors very brightly. I can imagine
this would be possible, but expensive, and what is the motive for deception if we were the the only two who saw it late on a cold February night??

During the next week, I spent many hours editing the footage, and wishing I had more time for a better capture. I set up my camera on the tripod
pointed at the same patch of sky for many hours. One week later, on 2/20/2014 at 5:40PM, I was filming a nice sunset with intricate patchwork of
clouds. While crunching the 1 hour video sequence into time-lapse, I was surprised to see a plane fly by, followed by a round disk that spins across
the top-right of the screen. It is small in the video, but unmistakebly round, likely spinning, and clearly on a mechanical flight path. I have done
some light editing on this, here are the results.
