Observer
NameRachel C
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThis was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. It came out of no where and I was stunned. Had no idea what it was. I woke my husband up in the middle of the night and tried explaining what I saw. He’s an astronomy teacher and told me it could have been a fireball. It was so fast and bright in color and looked like it had a flaming tail with some blue/green neon glow near the front. It looked like it went over the Columbia river, which is a view from my house. I expected some sort of loud crash or explosion but nothing. It was incredible, obviously never seen anything like it in my life.
