On this date I was driving,(I am a Trucker) north on U.S. 395 between Pasco and Ritzville Wa at about 10:30 pm when I saw an orange ball I thought at first was a meteor but it traveled to slow to be one, but I remember me and my son watching one a few years back in Idaho where I live and everyone said it was a meteor, so I thought nothing of it until last night I heard the Indian man talking about the Orange sphere over in Washington state and if im not wrong it was about the same time I saw that thing in our skies, any way thats what I saw. It was probably about 20 feet across but I couldnt be sure it was going from east to west and it had a long blue\orange streak behind it. and it went behind the hills to the northwest of my position that would be about 26 miles south of I-90 on U S 395.

A huge Orangish Ball, Drifting across the sky from east to west Landing behind some hills.
