|'cone-shaped mystery near Orion
My son (44 yrs. old) just called from Eastern Washington state to report a “cone-shaped” something with a “head” on it…. Enormous, above and to the right of Orion. 8 p.m.
At 8:30 he called back to report this: "out-gassing cometary fragment ? gas fluoresced into greenish gas thought it might be aurora, but didn't move" He doesn't think now that it is/was a UFO.... but it was certainly a thrilling experience.
A meteor would have been fiery. Something blew up, or 'exhausted'? We could not see it from Bellevue WA, 200 miles west of him.
Did anyone else see this?
((NUFORC Note: We are awaiting the son's report. PD))
