RemarksThe fireball/meteor was like a shooting star with a tail, it was so low & close, both below the cloud line and just in it which is where it disappeared, into the clouds heading towards Vancouver Island. The light was so bright that you could see the fireball and it's tail thru the thin cloud line, coming from the east towards the west. There were two instances where I saw it clearly below the cloud line. Afterwards I couldn't tell if the glowing lights over Mount Washington were from the ski hill lights or whether it crashed over there somewhere on the mountain top. It wasn't the light of the moon cause that was still rising from the east, to my far left. I thought our local coastal planes fly in that same height upon takeoff before they get to their top elevation, like I said it was at times just below the cloud line & just barely in it.
