((NUFORC Note: Reported to be re-entering space debris. We are grateful to all of those who submitted reports. PD))

Needle shaped light, possible space debris, crossed slowly from horizon to horizon, due east over Seattle area.

A large needle shaped object, possibly space debris crossed the dark morning sky from horizon to horizon, travelling due east. It was brightly illuminated, like a burning meteorite but it must have been quite large because it appeared to move slowly and remained in my field of view for at least 40 seconds. The east and west horizons were obstructed due to trees and the office building where I work, but I was able to view at least 120 degrees of the night sky (sunrise not occurred yet). Part of the object may have split off since a second brightly lit contrail appeared for about 5 to 7 seconds.
