Reported: 4/7/2013 2:05:09 AM 02:05
Posted: 5/15/2013
Location: Sequim, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-4 minutes
Very large yellow/orange/red orb crossing sky in N>S direction in the Western sky; changed shape over 3-4 mins and trailing/emitting

A yellow/orange/red orb moved across the western sky, from north to south (over PA/Carlsborg,WA area) at approx. 60 degrees above the horizon. The sky was heavily overcast and it was raining at the time; no stars of any kind were visible in the sky.

It moved slowly like a plane, but the light was too bright and the wrong color to have been one. As I watched it move, it began to “shed” and trail red/orange light (such as a rocket or “willow” style firework). It continued to move at the same speed, but with more sloughing off and trailing of red/orange light until it finally disappeared.
