|Driving to a meeting in Seattle Capitol Hill area, s. bound I-5 exited at Roanoke, I was stopped at light to turn, very clear winter night long light allowed observing aircraft in turning and flight pattern to Sea Tac airport to South, all of a sudden a huge Green flash descending as if on fire, bright enough to illuminate airborne aircraft undersides and illuminate a curlyQ smoke trail huge in size. Green glowing flash of light with whitish light on topside and then smoke trail as it descended lost some brillance and then completely out in an instant.
There was just myself in the car. Told members at meeting what I'd seen. Late in evening made a phone report and return call from Mr. Davenport. Now have computer online to report this same event as via phone. See the description in above summary. One note is that it was due south 25-30 degrees from center going to right as looking at a clock it would represent approx. 1 to 2 o'clock, and descending to about 5 oclock before going instantly out. This was a very large light. 1/4 to 1/2of my extended hand would represent the size of light. the green color was almost a phosphorous green color topped with diffused whitish light then serpentine smoke trail illuminated from light. At first thought of plane in pattern crashin, but size and equal distance put it more heavenly and southward then in sky above SeaTac airport area. Big light.
