Experience Level3/5
RemarksCalled komo news and king 5. King 5 news editor reported call from port orchard washington approximately same time and state patrol radio chatter regarding large flash across sky. I observed large light strobing across sky at incredible incredible incredible speed. I have seen many meteor showers but have never seen anything like this large white moon like orb. I hope someone captured on video! I was in shock and almost pulled over to park my truck on side of freeway interstate 5 heading northbound. Still in disbelief and can hardly describe what i saw
