A man and wife were returning just at dusk, driving on the I-90 bridge, just turning south onto Rainier Avenue, South.

Suddenly, they both witnessed a "magnesium white light" descend vertically to the horizon. It was first sighted about "three building heights" above the horizon, and it just fell straight down.

The object was to the north-northwest of the observers, it had fuzzy edges, smaller than the moon, and it had no tail. It was very bright, like burning magnesium.

The occupant of the car behind the observers also saw the object.

The observers called 9-1-1 and talked to a supervisor.

The following night, the man's son came into the parents' bedroom, suffering from a bloody nose. The son reported that he had just seen a beautiful shooting star to the south of their home on Mercer Island.
