Shape: Fireball
Duration:one second
Saw a Fireball at 9:00 pm sharp north of Sea-Tac Airport.

Looking to the east from Chelsea Park, Wa. at 9:00 pm sharp we saw a fireball descending rapidly from North to the south at a steep angle. This area is north of the airport by a short distance,and though there was no trail, the angle of descent and speed of the fireball seemed much out of character for an aircraft. Immediatly following, our cellphone rang. Sister said she saw a green fireball, apparently at the same time, over Maury Island, Wa.
