Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Streaking objects with smoke/steam tail just above the horizon, east of Seattle just before sunrise. The first appeared at 6:50Am, the second at about 7:10. Both appeared first as brilliant points of light, becoming comet-like in appearance as the decended. I observed both with a low-power telescope and could see the plume of smoke/steam trailing as the objects burned in descent. My guess is that they were satellite or craft debris. Both left cloud remnants that were brightly illuminated by the rising sun.
