Location: Spanaway, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2-3 minutes
Ball of fire in the sky twice in one night.

We were getting ready to shoot off some small fireworks for the kids when my husband noticed a strange light in the sky. Myself and my neighbor got up to look and it looked like an orange fireball. There were no flashing lights as if it were a plane, You could not see any shape to it to make us think it was a plane. There is an air strip very close to our house so we see planes regularly. It was just a ball of light high in the sky. It went from East to West and then we lost sight of it.

Later that night about 10:30pm we saw it again from our back porch. It was moving slower this time and almost hovering. We went into get the camera but as we were trying to find a setting to take a decent picture in the dark it disappeared.
