|I was exiting off hwy 522, as I made the left hand turn on to hwy 9. I saw a large white light, with a green tint to it. It had a very long tail white to orange in color. It's speed was compairable to a slow shooting star.
I saw the object just over the tree line, but it was quite a ways in the distance. It shot across the sky like a shooting star or metor, but it did not fade out like one. My whole siting was about three seconds. I stopped and stood on the running board of my S-10 Blazer, but the object was just gone! It traveled in a north to south-west direction. The next day I told my neighbor about this stating "that was the biggest shooting star I have ever seen" As I said in the brief above. I clearly saw at least three colors white, green and a very brite orange. I am 34 years old, a retail manager. I have lived most of my life in and around the Snohomish area.
