At aprox. 11am this morning I observed a comet like object ( a round glowing ball of light with a tail)desending rapidly towards the cascade mts near Mt. Rainier

I am the T.A.S. member you spoke with this morning about the comet like object I saw this morning over Mt. Rainer. The first object at 11am was the biggest. It was just to the south of Mt Rainer and decended over the south slop as I watched. The second object At 11:30 am was similar to the first but smaller. It was in the same location but it's decent was much more rapid, this one lasting about 3 mins. The third oject, again in the same location,at 12:10 pm was smaller yet with a decent that lasted less than a minute. the third I saw begin to appear in the sky at aprox.11,000 feet near the summit of Mt Rainier, first just a bright glowing ball then forming a tail as it started it's decent... thats the best I can do to describe this strange event.
