Explained chevron ufo sightings on 08/11/2016This is more of an explanation of what was seen than a ufo sighting. We were at Curlew Lake for a week. We were watching the Perseid meteors, from 22:00 to 23:30. I first noticed a chevron of 5 red blinking lights about 22:00. They were traveling from east to west over Curlew Lake, 9 miles north of Republic, WA. I called my son, wife and Mom out on the deck to look. The continued to fly directly over head. It was a flight of F-18 Super Hornets that had been refueling practicing over northern Washington for the whole day! Head their engines, they were night refueling. I think this might explain any chevron reports from probably the northern half of Washington for that night.
