Bright light with an a flash of an orange tail, before disappearing behind the tall buildings of downtownt Seattle.

I'm in my apartment on 8th and Madison, facing west, when I noticed a bright white light moving fairly fast towards the water. It's late, and I've been studying for a test, so my initial thought was I saw the lights on a plane landing.

Then I realized if it was a plane, it would have to be extremely close to appear to be moving as fast as it was. As I'm standing up to get a better look at it, I see an orange steak of like behind it.

Next thought is the largest shooting star I've ever seen, and at nearly 5 in the morning. Next thought was make a firecracker set off from a building? Where I viewed it from, it appeared over the Rainer tower though, so I would have no idea where the firecracker would have been sent off from.

I don't believe in UFO's, but this is the only place I could think of to turn to for an explanation.

Hopefully, someone else saw it too, and could let me know.
