      SEATTLE (AP) - Some callers saw many lights in the night sky
across the Northwest. Others said it was one broad streak of light.
A few people even called a UFO group to report the sighting.
      ``It was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen,'' Dave Way of
Keizer, Ore., told the Statesman Journal in Salem, Ore. ``It looked
like something out of `Star Trek.'''
      What it was, was space junk, the body of an old Russian rocket
burning up as it reentered the atmosphere, state and federal
officials said. And whatever was left of it fell safely in the
Pacific Ocean off the coast of Washington, said Milt Maas at the
National Weather Service in Spokane.
      The unofficial descriptions were more colorful.
      ``It looked like a huge bottle rocket moving slowly across the
sky,'' June Akiyama, who was in Gig Harbor, told The News Tribune
of Tacoma.
      Dale Goudie, information director of the Seattle-based UFO
Reporting and Information Service, said he received 44 calls from
people who said they saw eight objects streaking across the sky
from 9:09 p.m. to 9:15 p.m.
      ``Some people said they weren't going in a linear path - that
they were actually turning, which surprised me,'' Goudie said.
      Callers told KXRO radio in Aberdeen that they saw one intense
streak of light. Others told radio stations and newspapers in
Washington and British Columbia they saw six or seven lights, or
even 25 to 30.
      Frank Frazee of Centralia said he and his family saw the lights
moving across the sky.
      ``It looked like a falling star,'' said Frazee's daughter,
Janessa, 18. ``It was fire-colored, orange-reddish with a head that
was white. It was cool.''
