Fireball In The Sky!

It was moving slow enough that we thought it was an aircraft of sorts but between the fireworks going off, we, the group of us, could not hear anything. We shared binoculars to take a look at this spectacular light in the sky.

My daughter says she sees them frequently when she is out with her telescope checking out the stars. I wouldn't say it was completely circular but more like a sideways egg that was glowing reddish-orange. This lasted about 20minutes before it just glided away back into the atmosphere. Oh yea and there were several aircrafts in the area since SeaTac is just across the valley from us.
