Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
Large glowing Red Firebell as I looked to the North/NorthEast from my home in Magnolia/Seattle. So bright -- the light emanted into a large cross at one point (like a Xmas star). Then it disappeared very quickly over the horizon line to the north.

Large glowing Red Orb. Hard to judge size as there was no distance perspective to do so. At one point it got brighter and emanated large beams of light in a cross pattern. I watched for one minute until it shot off at high speed seemingly to the North. There were other aircraft around -- obvious by their navigational lights.
