Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 min.
huge fireball

My Boyfriend and I were sitting on our front porch and we saw a bright orange glow coming toward us at a very fast speed, It began to get brighter so we went out into the street to observe it, then it looked like it was splitting in two but it was a piece of something falling from the fireball looking object,

It kept moving at a fast speed south of us towards the Portland International airport in which we live only 5 min. from the I-5 bridge that crosses into Oregon.

At first we thought it could have been a firecracker but it was too big and made no sound and kept moving accross the sky for a long period of time until we couldnt see it through the trees.

We tried calling our local news station to report it but no luck and we tried to call the airport but could not find a reporting number so I thought I would report it on you'r site in hopes to learn more about what we saw tonight.

My thought is that it was a metoer or something from space, so I plan on calling OMSI tomorrow to report as well and to find out what we saw.. Thank you, ((name deleted))
