Meteorites/Space Junk?

I was entering i90 off of the Evergreen exit heading west and looked up in the sky and saw a long white trailheahind a freefalling object. There was no fire ball that seemed to be leading the tail but the tail was sparse through its middle as if the object was letting smoke off from its front and sides as if splitting the tail down the middle to join at the end of the tail again. It was falling at a very sharp fast moving diagonal angle think of 11 o clock and 5 o clock on a clock with hands, Low and behold, out of absolutly no where, a second object appeared to be falling behind it at a higher elevation, same angle, same description as the first tail. Both were very slim shaped comet tails. The direction the were moving was left to right, they seemed to be heading in a NW direction, for they were moving farther and farther away from me as I got further west on the freeway. Eventually they both fell below the horizon line and became unvisible due to low laying cloud coverage. In 6 minutes both objects fell from half way up in the sky to below the horizon line. Both moved at the same speed, falling at the same and same angle. I know it was 6 minutes because as soon as I saw them I called crime check worried that it was space junk comming back after plumetting from space and could hurt someone, that call was 6 minutes, durating from 4:12pm to 4:18 pm. It was completly day out side and the color of the trails behind the objects was pure white, the objects causing the tails must have been smal in size, as I could not make a shape to either one. Wondering if there is anyone else who may have been driving East or West on i90 and saw it also? I imagine if you were west of the tails they would move right to left.

Im checking the object landed box because the objects had to have landed somewhere, I believe somwhere North West of Spokane, I did not actually see a landing. There was a helicopter in the sky at the time, not chasing the objects or even anywhere near them, it was merely flying a straight line below the horizon heading in the direction of felts field in Spokane Valley, the objects were in the Westward sky well beyond the cities of Spokane and Spokane Valley possibly closer to Cheney than to Spokane.

I spoke to a man who returned my missed call who suggested I come to the site to leave a report there after.

I hope that there may be others who saw it from a closer northwest position, I am really perplexed and curious about what the object could have been.

Thank you
