Fireballs over Puget Sound, group of 5 then 5 more that shot into sky

On the night of December 22, 2014, at 7:35 for 6-7 minutes, I saw fireballs in the sky over the north end of Vashon Island, WA.

I observed as closely as I could. They looked like extremely bright disks of fire, sometimes with pinkish-bright edges or centers; one seemed to have a metallic rim. In my vision, they were between the size of nickels and dimes.

The disks were beautiful and after a time, seemed either to burn up individually or fade off in space.

I was outdoors, and there was no noise, even when five more fireballs, seeming to rise out of Puget Sound, shot over the trees below me in extremely rapid succession, in a West to East trajectory into the sky overhead.

The objects then became jittery and quickly flew into at least two formations.

I called my sister-in-law who lives on the street above me, to go to her window. When I asked her a few days later what she saw, she said, “A big red ball in the sky.”

The objects never moved toward Seattle, staying above and in front of my vision northward, until they were gone.
