Duration:5 seconds
N.E. WA. 3 witnessed rocket shaped UFO emmitting orange sparks.

My girlfriends brother in law age 30, my daughter, and myself 31 were driving down hwy. 395 headed west through Kettle Falls, WA.

The time was around 5:30 11-11-02 when when my attention was drawn to the sky I saw a reddish orange object emiting what looked like orange sparks, and it had a tail. It seemed to just appear, and then seemed to almost stretch as it flew off to west (like you see the enterprise do when it hits warp speed). It looked like it stopped as it entered atmosphere, then shot to the West.

It was shaped like a 50's rocket toward the front (round nose, not pointy), but it had a tail emmitting what looked like orange sparks. It had what looked to be an area in the front that was free from sparks in the center of what I would call the nose (clear bubblelike but outlined in orange sparks)

It was in the middle of town, with alot of activity, there were surely more witnesses.

During the sighting we were all quiet, and it took a moment , or two for me to ask, if anyone saw what I saw. My girlfriends brother confirmed what I saw as did my daughter who asked what it was, I had no answer.
