Just by chance (on the way to empty the garbage!) at 21:58 PST on 10 Nov =
98, I saw a bright object streaking from SSE to N. The streak (i.e. the =
time the object was bright) was about 20-25 degrees, stating at about =
55-60 degrees above the northern horizon. The object was very bright, =
much brighter than Venus, and it had an apparent diameter of 3-4 =
Venuses.
It was funny too, because as usual in Seattle, it was raining. All of =
the sky was obscured by a thin spotty layer of clouds. The stars were =
not visible.

Any ideas of what it might have been? Early Leonid arrival?
