"W" shaped meteor burns up above Seattle

First off, this wasn't a UFO, I don't think. I was looking due East and happened to look up just as this object went by. I'm pretty sure that it was a shooting star, but it wasn't like any shooting star that I've ever seen! The object was "W" shaped, with the bottom half of the "W" facing east. The tail was a brilliant orange color, and the "W" was an intense blue-green. It was moving at a high rate of speed, and seemed to dissapate as it neared the ground. The tail was about two inches by hand-held finger length in the sky.

I have no doubt that it was a meteor burning up in the atmostphere, but it was so low to the ground, and the "W" shape of the blue-green head makes me wonder.
