At 11:50 PM on March 13, 2001 I saw a fast moving, bright orange light traveling south to north.

At about 11:50 PM on March 13, 2001 I saw a bright orange light traveling south to north. I live in South Bellevue, Washington. I had just stepped outside to take one of my dogs out before going to bed. As I stepped off the porch in the back yard I looked back, over the roof of my house, to the West. There I first saw the bright orange light. It was due west when I first caught sight of it. There were a number of trees blocking my view, yet I could see that it traveled at a very high rate of speed. It moved quite a bit faster than any plane I had ever seen. I would say it took about 5 seconds to travel from where I first saw it to the west until it disappeared from my view to the North. I would say it was around 30 to 40 degrees above the horizon. There was no sound nor was there any trail of sparks. It appeared to travel straight and level. I wrote down notes about the sighting the next day. I didn't know what to do about it at the time. Then a few days ago I saw your program on the local cable access channel. I copied down the URL for the web site and decided I should report it.
