Yellowish-green glowing object over Bellingham, WA

Was in my back yard last night around 10:45 and saw a far-off object and just kept my eye on it because I thought it might be a satellite and wanted to watch it go by. It was going really fast, faster than the satellites and faster than the airplanes that come by my home. It also was much lower than a satellite or plane. Looked for blinking lights on an airplane and there were none.

As it came within clear view, my mouth dropped open – it was a glowing greenish yellow and I immediately thought about the glowsticks that kids use at Halloween. The shape was really odd, not seemingly aerodynamic at all - it was rounded and I feel like it had two rounded parts hooked together – not discs though. It was completely silent and very big and much lower in the sky than even the small airplanes.

I took two steps out further into my yard when it got the closest to me so I wouldn’t lose sight of it as it went by… and it disappeared. Either the lights went completely dark or it actually disappeared.

Never have seen anything like this before – I just stood there with my mouth open.
