Duration:20 sec
A round green flare dropped slowly from the sky and landed on the ground

We were driving heading west on I-90 in Moses Lake, Washington. It was about 7:00 (?) and it was pitch black out, but very clear. There were two of us in the front seat with another asleep in the back of the car. A round green flare fell out of the sky. It fell slowly enough for the two of us in the front seat to say "what the heck is that?", wake up the passenger in back, have her sit up and watch it drop as well. It didn't look like it dropped far from where we were - maybe a mile?

((NUFORC Note: We believe the witness is alluding to the dramatic fireball seen over Puget Sound on Monday, 15OC01, at approximately 2023 hrs. (Pacific). The exact time is known because the object was photographed with a sky camera in Courtenay, B.C.. We have changed the time here. PD))
