Location: Shelton, WA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Bright orange object flying very rapidly to the southwest, no tail and too fast to be meteorite.

I went outside to look at the stars and after a little while a very bright and very fast light shot across the sky...faster then anything Ive seen, it was heading slightly southwest of our house, it didnt leave a trail like a meteorite would and it didnt fade out or dissapear...it just shot into and out of sight very rapidly without any stopping or direction change.
