Duration:3-4 seconds
A large red glowing ball of fire with a long tale was seen in the south eastern part of the sky. The object was as big a full moon in the sky.

I was driving in Kennewick, Washington around 9:00-9:15pm and was heading east on Clearwater Ave. I was approaching Columbia Center Blvd. and saw a huge object in the sky. The object was round and looked like a giant fire ball. The object was bright red with fire coming off of the surface. I saw this fireball in the south eastern part of the sky and it seemed bigger than the moon in the sky that night(which was only a partial crescent moon). I would say it was as big as a full moon when comparing it to the objects in the sky. It definitely was the largest, unidentified object I have ever seen in my life. It was so large I expected to feel some type of impact after it disapeared beyond the outline of the buildings(which were in my way, so I could not see it land or crash).
