Fireball Seen Over the North Coast and Up to Washington State
About 11:33 p.m., multiple people reported seeing a fireball streaking across the skies from southeast to northwest–sightings stretched from the Bay Area to Washington State. (See reports here.)
A woman in Central Point Oregon wrote, “This was blindingly bright…[I] was watching a black and white cat about 70 feet away when it turned it’s face toward me and eye glow was intense, at same time over my left shoulder, super bright light made me look up. The size of the ball was about comparable to the size of a full moon, when seen high in the sky. It was white except around the edges were bright squiggley but defined red, blue and green lights. Thoroughly enjoyed the gift of seeing this!”
One woman posted on Humboldt County on Alert, a Facebook site, that she she saw the unusual object about 11:30 p.m. She wrote, “[I]t was so big the tail was about as thick as my pinky held up against the sky at arm’s length. Cool enough, right – but it was RAINBOW colored. Not kidding – blue, yellow, red, green etc!! (And I’ve never done drugs, I was sober, and my husband saw it too lol).”
We have to ask, as she did, if anyone else saw it.
She said it was “Literally a once in a lifetime sighting.”
Dang, we’re disappointed that we missed it. Let us know if you saw it.
