July 3, 2010 sighting over Seattle,WA

I was enjoying the beautiful clear night whith five family members, from the rooftop lounging area of Inn At The Market, on July 3, 2010. The veiw over Puget Sound was amazing.

Just after sunset, yet not quite dusk, I noticed a brite yellow-white fireball streaking across the sky from the direction of the space needle toward the south west. I know this was not a plane, it was too fast, and strobes were absent.

I also know it was not a sattleite, because it was too fast. It's size was too large to be a hellicopter yet too small to be a plane. It was missing wings and/or rotar.

The other thing that sets it apart is it was silent. There were no fireworks going in the area muchl ess in that direction at that time. The height in the air that it was flying was equivalent to that of plane not preparing to land. This fireball object was moving way slower than a meteor/falling star.

I am reporting this because I couldn't identify it, even with a military background.

I am truly stunned. I will not forget it.. This is my second sighting in my life.
