Large fiery mass descends and breaks apart over Seattle July 4th, 2014.

My boyfriend and I were getting ready to watch the numerous firework shows that were visible from our deck. We had channel 7 news on as well in case things weren't as visible.

The glowing moon and the effects of the clouds running across it caught my attention. I told my boyfriend to look as well. Not too long after that perhaps less than 2 minutes later. I could no longer see the striped-bands of clouds illuminated over the moon as I just did.

Now the entire moon (which was in crescent form btw) was encased in what looked like a large yellow glowing...light I guess. As if the little crescent was in the center of this perfect glowing yellow/amber hue/glow/light.

Just then from what looked like the bottom tip/point of the moon, directly under the bottom point in the moon, and this yellow glow around the moon was still apparent and actually blocked a little of the vision of where this "debris" came from---but anyway

From this area in the sky, and out of nowhere it seemed, fell these flaming large objects. It started as a huge mass and I didn't know whether I was watching a meteor, something on fire in the sky falling or what?

Anyway, this mass broke off into what looked like 2 fragments but could well have been more...could only see this initial fiery breaking down of whatever was falling.

Soon after the breaking down, just like some normal thing in flames, it went out, and I feel I could tell for only a second that when the flames went out there was still an object in free fall.

My boyfriend and I had been talking to one another the whole time. He saw everything as well, and it truly perplexed us! Main firework show had not begun, a lot of air traffic out there in the skies, which kept my boyfriend and I checking out the different aircrafts.

We looked to the TV for any explanation...where we saw in text under the news reporters that sky divers were falling. Which I thought was odd and rather dangerous, but kind of bought it and put my guard down.

I looked dramatically for anything similar to that all night. Nothing matched what I saw. And I was outside for awhile. Various fireworks and cannons and aircrafts could not be substituted for the large mass descending completely on fire.
