|Bright blue light in the southern sky of Puyallup, WA.
I saw what looked like a meteor streak down across the southern sky. It was extremely bright.
A few seconds later I saw another, similar streak but this one seemed to burn out quickly and did not make it down to the horizon as the first one did.
Then, I saw a bright blue light with a tiny glint of red light emerge slowly up from the horizon, traveling upward.
At first I thought this might be fireworks or a drone but my window was open and the night was silent. The blue light appeared to be miles away and its altitude too high to be a hobby drone.
The light continued slowly until it was out of view. It was too bright to be an aircraft and it was absolutely silent. I suppose it could be some phenomenon associated with a meteor shower, but I've never seen anything that bright moving slowly upward.
We do have McChord Air Force base nearby as well but this is the first time I've witnessed anything quite like what I saw.
