Location: Bow-Edison, WA
Shape: Fireball
Looking East from Samish Bay, WA. Fireball moving at high speed disapeared over hills/horizon.

Was east of Samish Island in Samish Bay trying to pick up some crab traps before it became to dark to find them. After failing I was slowly driving back to the mouth of the Samish River to dock and I happened to look Eastward. I then saw a Fireball shoot down and looked to dissapear behind the hill. It looked kind of like you would imagine a cruis missle would look like from behind, a ball o' flame just ripping across the sky at incredibly high speeds. Only saw said object for less then a second before it dissapeard either behind the hills or over the horizon. Seemed to be very large in size, about half an inch tall or so. Several planes flew overhead immediately after, but position is between two regional airports so any relation is probably an affect of an overactive imagination.
