Duration:30 seconds
Summary : 4 yellowish-orange balls with streaming tails moving very slowly from West to East disappearing behind the Cascade foothills.

As I exited the house I was drawn by the lights in the North sky. The moon was full and stars were difficult to see. No clouds, air traffic at a low. 4 slow moving lights, from West to East. Streaming tails appeared to be 30 degrees long in the sky. The object(s) were at approx. 20 degrees above the Northern horizon. Others in a car stopped to ask me if I saw them and told me they watched them for 1 to 2 minutes at the top of the hill to the South of me. They confirmed a yellowish orange color and the long tails. Note: My magnetic, static, and subsonic detectors did not detect anything. They have in some past occasions.
