Location: The Dalles, OR
Shape: Fireball
Duration:90 seconds
I was laying in my bed looking through the window which faces to the west. When suddenly a bright orange ball of fire appeared. I watched it for approximately 90 seconds when it left my line of sight through the window. At that time I went to wake my father for him to see it, but he would not wake.

Orange fireball with a streaming tail approximately 4 times the length of the body. It moved slowly through the sky from west to east.
