Duration:1 to 5 min
My mother saw this, she said it came from the north towards her as she was inside looking out her window. It was a large RED FIRE BALL, the size was four times bigger than her fist (with arm out) and it hovered over the area (she assumes would be over the North part of the Port of Tacoma, went to get Dad- came back it was gone. She has always been a sceptic of these things - can't believe her eyes. Says over and over it was a huge red fire ball and just hovered in the sky over the sound.

same info as above. My mother is 66 yrs old and has been married for 48 yrs and does not see things, a very old-fashion up to date type of person - very truthful. When she did see this, it appeared as a dot and grew in size as if approaching her way (it was heading south)from the north (looking towards Point Defiance - from her view)She lives next to the fairway of Highland Hill Golf Course, so she had a good view of the sky.
