According to reports on social media the object(s) seen which appeared to be a cluster of burning red and yellow fireballs was the result of a Space X Falcon 9 failing to make a "deorbit burn." The following tweet link provides the explanation and shows a sky trajectory of Northeast which aligns with my personal sighting and as seen in social media videos.

(Falcon 9 space x explanation below) I viewed the objects from the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle looking to the east for approximately 20 seconds. To note, on the tail end of the burning fireball object appeared to be a flashing plane object on the same trajectory path. Nearby animals such as the neighbor dog and coyotes in the greenbelt 100yds to the east were quiet. However, the coyotes about 30 minutes later did start howling- to note on this, they have been howling during evening hours regularly the last two weeks.
