I don't know what these were, not saying they were extraterrestrial by any means, but curious what kind of aircraft would be flying in this formation
and in this manner (?).
Context - I live in Maple Valley, WA. I was walking my dog the other night and I almost always look up at the sky when I take him for a stroll.
Usually I don't see much besides commercial airplanes flying north and south a bit further west either landing at Sea-Tac airport or flying to and
from smaller private airports in the area. But this night (Tuesday, 9/27 at exactly 8:12PM PT), I saw three aircraft, that appeared to be wing
shaped, flying a lot lower than other aircraft around here do, directly over my house and completely silent. They each had flashing white lights on
their wings and a single red light on the fuselage area. If I had to guess I'd say they were over 300 feet but definitely under 1,000 ft in the air.
They were headed west to due east toward the Cascade foothills.
At first I was stunned, mostly because while they kind of sort of looked like they might be a plane of some kind there was definitely something off
about them, they were way slower and way lower and way quieter than I'd ever seen an aircraft that was common fly, and there were three of them less
than 100 feet apart flying in a straight line. After a couple of seconds I managed to take a few pics with my iPhone but (of course) they are less
than stellar, even though I was trying to be pretty calm and all. I tracked them until they flew beyond the treeline in my neighborhood.
I ask those of you more informed than I am - what were these things? Military? Commercial? Private? Thanks in advance!
