Duration:10 min
A ball of fire with a tail movng from north to south in the western ski

It was in the western skies, moving from north to south. A ball of fire with a long tail following it,I assume it was a metor. But did not see any news reports on it. I pointed it out to one of the passenger. Probably others heard me and looked also.

((NUFORC Note: Similar reports and video tapes from other parts of the Seattle area. They looked to us like contrails behind distant airliners. PD))
