Duration:2 minutes
We were heading west on the North Bend to Fall City Road. (203?) There were two parallel primary bright objects with multiple bright objects following, much like one would expect of a comet or a shooting fireworks display. The tails were reddish in color extending quite far behind and again moving parallel. Low on the horizon the tails were perhaps the width of my palm (4") at arms length. The tails seemed to get shorter as the objects moved toward us. The objects were moving very slow, about the speed of a plane about to land, from a West-Southwest to a East Northeast direction. It seemed to come over Tiger or Cougar Mountain and disappear just to the north of Mt. Si. They started very low on the horizon and moved up and over my shoulder. I had the distinct impression that I was watching something burning up. My comment was it looks like a sattelight breaking apart and burning up, but again it was very low on the horizon. The tail was reddish but gave the feel of a headlight piercing fog. However the sky was exceptionally clear. Observer(s): Male 48, Female 45, two children 13 and 11. Both my wife and I have college degrees with post graduate work. However no navigational or flight experience. Hope it helps ((Name deleted))
