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.
