Two Washington witnesses at Spanaway reported watching “two triangular sets of lights” moving north to south that passed directly overhead and appeared to be attached to a “dark black or gray” colored object, according to November 26, 2012, testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database.
The reporting witnesses’ wife was outside when the object was first noticed and she alerted her husband. They were looking at a set of three, red glowing lights with a second set of three lights two or three miles behind it.
“When the first one was nearly overhead I noticed the lights were in a triangle shape exact distances from each other and glowing, not incandescent or strobes, directly below a dark black or gray triangular-shaped object,” the witness stated. “The first object made a turn like a tether ball on a pole 180 degrees and headed back north and the second object did the same shortly after.”
At one point the couple thought that the two objects might collide.
“At one point I thought they might collide when they passed each other by mere feet. Both continued north and disappeared into the clouds about 10 miles away. There was never any sound heard by me or my wife.”

My wife was out on the back porch having a cigarrette and came running in screaming come look and I said look at what and she said theres red lights in the sky coming this way. So I grab my coat and ran out on the back porch to see a set of 3 red glowing lights coming towards us and another set of 3 about 2 or 3 miles directly behind the first also coming towards us. When the first one was nearly overhead I noticed the lights were in a triangle shape exact distances from each other and glowing not incandescent or strobes directly below a dark black or grey triangular shaped object.
