Location: Tumwater, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:4 sec.
Green fireball going east to west across the sky.

I'm a truck driver. I was at mile marker 100 on I-5 going north. My co-worker was driving his truck right behind me. It was 10:30 PM, I know the time because Art Bell was going on his first brake on his radio show.I looked up and saw a green fireball go across the sky from east to west.The freeway at that point is 6 lanes across. At the side of the road on both sides are fir trees about 50ft. tall. I saw the fireball for about 4 sec. The tail of the fireball went all the way across the freeway when the ball was on the west side of the road. Not knowing the elevation of the fireball because there was nothing to refrence it to the tail could of been 100s or 1000s of feet long. my co-worker called me on the radio right after I saw the ball. We talked about the fireball and he saw the same thing I did.
