Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 minutes
I was driving home from the Vancouver Airport and something had obviously just cut a swath through a cloud at 30 degree angle to the earth and left a short vapour trail just after exiting the cloud. This is when I first noticed it. A tear drop shaped "fireball" with continued in a straight line from the vapour trail and then made a curved drop below the mountains to the east. It was between Mt. Baker to the right and the rising sun to the left. To the farther left of the sun was another vapour trail and two smaller ones below it. These seemed farther eastward than the "fireball". Can send a roughly drawn description if you are even slightly interested. Thought it might be MORE of those Russian rocket boosters.
