Duration:2-5 seconds
Fireball with tail suddenly hits lower altitude, flame gone, half-circle shape with antennae.

Happened to look up at this object while walking near downtown Bellingham. Began as a fireball with a "pollywog"(baby frog) shape (I remember thinking), complete with a "tail" kind of wagging behind it.

Watched this maybe 2 seconds, then suddenly, a flash of blue, and the fireball was gone, and I recall expecting the object to be round, maybe a meteor, but instead it was HALF OF A CIRCLE in shape, with the front shaped flatish, and on each side of the front, I somehow made out two sets (of two) antennae-like protrusions. (changing of colors due to coming out of orbit, likely; though I do not know the technical term for it, but like a spacecraft that hits the outer layers of sky on Earth, and going through that, and then suddenly having gone through it, and there was a flash of blue when it did that)

As soon as I realized this half-circle shape, with the strange aparatus protrusions, I was taken so aback that I didn't watch it any longer, and it was gone.
