Saturday Night Fireball


meteor

We were driving south on I-5 Saturday night and witnessed
a bright white light get brighter and spawn a magnificent
blue-green tail. It looked like it crashed to earth but
scientist guess it went into the Pacific. It looked so close
but people saw it from Portland to the Tri-Cities and
all over Seattle. Wow! I was too stunned to grab my camera.

man I bet that was awesome to see. Too bad you didnt break out the camera.

Yeah, the camera was right beside me in the console, but I was captured by the moment, it all happened so fast.

This happened to me once too. A couple of years ago...it was greenish, and it was going fast. I didn't tell anyone, because I was sure they'd have me committed.

My wife, kids and I were running late for a party that night. If we would have left the house on time we would have missed the whole thing.
