Mike Miller of Kennewick, looked out at the Columbia River around 10:30pm Monday night and saw three orbs of light hanging in the sky.

The lights were as big as a car and "weren't blinking like an airplane's"

He said he watched for 15-20 seconds as the lights moved west over the river betweem the cable bridge and blue bridge about 2,000 feet up.

The Federal Aviation Administration tower at the Tri-Cities Airport closed at 10pm so FAA representatives couldn't say if anything unusual crossed their radar.

And the Southeast Comunications Center in Richland refused to say whether any strange reports were made to the 911 dispatch center Monday night.

Peter Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center, which is west of Spokane, said he hadn't recieved any reports of UFO sightings in Washington since April 8, when someone reported seeing bright blue lights over mabton.

Davenport said out of  20,000 Americans who see a genuine UFO only one will report it.  He encourages more people to report their UFO sightings. For more information about UFO sightings or to make a report visit nuforc.org
