Fireball object in Puget Sound Area

this is in reference to sighting I belive I saw the very same thing. I was in my living room with a window that faced north across lake Offut south of Olympia. The lights were on inside so the object was bright enough to be seen though the window of a fully light house. The object travel from West to East at a somewhat downward angle. It appeared to be at a great distance as the object moved slowly accross the sky. I was able to go to a second room with windows facing the same direction and wake up my roomate who was sleeping so that she could see the same thing. She verfified the sighting. It was a fireball with trailing debris, moving slowly, orange in color. KIRO news reported that evening that it had been a russian space craft that was being tracked by Norad an re-entered north of Vancover BC. Later that Evening I noticed a lot of air traffic in that direction, but a military base was close by.
