Shape: Light
Duration:2.5 seconds
Bright greenish white light falls directly in front and center sight of NB hwy 97 just before Yakima Indian Reservation

Driving hwy 97 north to Yakima. As I was driving my semi up the mountain a bright white light with a greenish tint came directly down in front and center of the hwy view. At the time it would have been highly unlikely to see anything in the sky due to the hillside and trees on both sides. This light came directly down smack in the center and seemingly disappeared into the road(over the hill) The light was consistent-bright but not blinding- it did not get brighter or duller as it came down. There were 2 cars about 150 ft in front of me that would have witnessed it as well. It's hard to say how far away the light source was (possibly a mile). I did not hear any sound and it only seemed to last about 2.5 seconds. If you were to hold a quarter out straight at arms length-that would roughly be the size of the light.
