Observer
NameFrank B
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI live 1/2 Mile North-East of Auburn, Washington. We (3 of us) were standing on our patio when I saw a "Huge" Fireball streaking down for the night sky. I got excited, and said "Hey, look!" It came from the South East, and appeared to have landed into the Puget Sound. People had reported it from Aberdeen, and Camano Island, Washington. Me me, it looked like it originated somewhere above Mt. Rainier, and landed in the Puget Sound somewhere near Salt Water State Park. If I could guess the size of it, I'd say it looked like it was the size of a bus, and it had light yellow flames emitting out of the sides. It also had a white-hot looking Ion Trail following it. It was one of the most amazing "Natural" things I have very seen in my life!
