Here are the tweets sent out by the National Weather Service after the public demanded an answer on what the strange object was:
Based on the observed video, this looks more likely than a bolide meteor or similar object as they would be moving far faster on impact with our atmosphere. There are NO expected impacts on the ground in our region at this time. More info will be posted as it becomes available.

ABC 2 News covered the intriguing story and released these details:
People in the Pacific Northwest were stunned, thrilled and maybe a little frightened Thursday night as they witnessed some mysterious objects in the sky.
Reports from people seeing the objects came in from everywhere in the Northwest and at least as far north as Seattle. Many people reported seeing it around 9 p.m.
What precisely the object, or objects, was has not been confirmed, but the National Weather Service in Seattle said it may have been debris from a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket that did not have a successful “deorbit burn.”
That theory has been backed up by Dr. Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the center for astrophysics, Harvard & Smithsonian.
