Fire Ball seen over lake sammamish

I saw a triangular object falling toward the ground over lake sammamish. From my view point it was about 30 degrees above the horizon. It seemed to be coming from the west arching downward. I would disregard it as a shooting star, but its was very bright and very large for a shooting star. It was large enough to recognize that it seemed to have a triangular shape. It was a blueish white color. The light from the object faded as it fell, until it simply disappeared.

During high school I was an amateur astronomer. I've seen many shooting stars some of them quite bright. But I have never seen anything like this before.
