Location of Event: NW of Wahkiakum County
Message: One night camping in a friends back yard we witnessed about 5 white/orange individual orbs appeared to be in an aerial “Dog Fight” with what seemed to be our military fighter planes.
The orbs could radically out maneuver the jets, making 90 degree changes in direction instantly, stopping completely, or accelerating quickly away. Our fighters were climbing, rolling, and diving attempting to stay effectively engaged with the orbs.
The orbs were firing RED lazar beams and our jets were firing rockets with BLUE flame trails. This encounter lasted some 20 to 30 minutes. There were a couple of fiery explosions, but we couldn’t tell from our distance away what exploded.
The next morning a convoy of unmarked dark blue military vehicles passed going up the valley roads that give access to the forest under the area where this took place in the sky. In the afternoon of the next day the same convoy (a dozen vehicles) came back down the road with 2 lowboy semi trailers hauling objects looking like wreckage under dark blue tarps.
One of the reasons we camped in the back yard was to watch for the crafts my friend had told me had taken samples of the trees and the chimney bricks of their house; I could see where they were cut away. My wife confirms what I remember is the same as what her ex-husband (same friend I camped with that night) had explained to her during their marriage.
