Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Falling Unidentified metallic object with trail

It was sunny outside and I was looking out of my window onto Elliott Bay, SW of my location. From what must have been several miles away, I saw a metallic object (reflecting off of the sun) plummeting towards the earth, leaving a smoke trail. From my vantage point, it looked like it could have descended somewhere in the vicinity of Vashon Island, or out in the ocean. The object appeared to be large and descended straight down vertically.
