At 12:40 am PST, I was sitting at a traffic light in downtown Renton Wa. when I looked to the west and saw an extremely large, bluish white fireball falling from the sky at a 75 to 80 degree angle. I viewed the object for 2 to seconds and it was so bright and large that I could see the white hot fire on this object. It was even bright enough to light up a very long trail of smoke that it was emmiting as it fell. After about 2 to 3 seconds, the object disappeared without a trace and I could no longer see the smoke trail that it left. If you are looking at the head of a pushpin held at arms length, that was the approx. size of the object. The object disappeard at about the same altitude as a small aircraft coming in for a landing. there is a small airport very close by so altitude is failry easy to guage.
