At 11:40-11:45 PM on Saturday February 19, 2000, we just had left Tacoma in a car going north on the I-5 freeway when we looked over to the west and could see a UFO heading east. The description is as follows: object was larger than the moon that night, it was a green glowing light that turned into a burning ball of flames, burning bottom front to top. We could see falling debris, and flames. You could distinctly see the shape of the fiery flames burning off the UFO. It was disintegrationg more and more as it hit the horizon.
