Duration:2 sec.
green fireball seen falling in an arc toward Longview,WA and appear to hit the ground with 3 flashes

I was outside looking at the stars at the bottom of the hour, when I saw a green fireball, like a meteorite leaving a brief trail, fall from west to east in an arc, not quite a straight line, as if it was losing velocity. Seen from my position: looking to the SE horizon, at 130 degrees heading. Appears to hit the ground behind the hills, as three explosions light up sky. Drawing a line on the map from Frances,WA at 130 deg. comes close to Longview,WA. I just wonder if anybody else saw it, and if it hit the ground near any populated areas. ?
