in the north east sky - a huge GREEN meteor like event with a brilliant bronze like tail. an sudden instant after seeing the green fireball a very very tiny star like dot, in the same location in the sky - just a little higher and to the left, blinked and disappeared.

this thing was very large in the sky - amazing - i instantly thought - wow - one of the green fireballs - but it was so huge - so vivid. i am visiting my daughter in kennewick for the summer and always the sky-watcher. it was really incredible - so huge - so bright. the most brilliant emerald green i have ever witnessed. and the bronze tail appeared to be burning.
