Location: Seattle, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5-8 seconds
While travelling south on highway 509 (south of 1st south bridge), a greenish fireball observed in SouthWest sky at about 10 o'clock high, moving to the west. The fireball was moving to the west, and disappeared over a hill to my right.

The object looked like a green fireball, with a long tail. I was travelling home on the freeway named above, and looked up just in time to see this green fireball. I thought it was strange, since it was big enough to be very close, yet it did not die out, like fireworks would do. It just kept moving towards the west, and then disappeared over the hill on my right (out of view). There was one other person with me in the car, but that person was talking and did not see it. It did not give it any more thought, until I turned on the Art Bell show, and heard a lady in Seattle call in and describe the very thing that I had just seen. I know the time was right about 9:10pm, because I had just left a store in the University District, and the travel time to the point of observation was about ten minutes.
