Three lights, middle light blinked off, then left light went off, came back on the the middle light came on, then it moved from hovering to moving right overhead, No anti collision lights were observed. flew approximately 2-3000 feet over head no sound
I was on patrol, heading south and stopping at the stop sign on 272nd. (at the bowling ally) I notice three bright lights towards the south east over the Lake Goodwin area. The lights were not moving. I sat there and watch the lights, I pointed them to my passenger, a 16 or 17 year old girl whom was doing a ride a long. Her mother worked for the department.
The middle light, which was lower in position went out. Several seconds the left light went out. The left light came on then the middle light came on. The lights moved as soon as the lights came on. We watched as it approached and went above us at about 2-3000 feet. There was no flashing red or anti collision lights. There was no sound. As it passed I saw the light shining to the front. For some reason I could not make out the shape of the object behind the lights. I watched the lights till they faded away. The direction was towards The naval air station Whidbly Island. I did make a computer picture of what I saw, I am unable to locate it at this time. I will keep looking.
