Location: Battle Ground, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:4 seconds
Fireball observed over Battle Ground, WA

A sparkling point-shaped object was observed moving in a straight line, very fast, fairly close to the ground, at approximately the altitude that aircraft normally fly. There was no sound to be heard from the object. I felt that I was watching the last few seconds of flight before the object impacted the ground. It looked like a 'shooting star' only it was much closer than any one I have seen before. The object was moving in the South-West direction. It might have impacted in Vancouver, Washington. I live in Battle Ground, which is north-east of Vancouver.

This could possibly have been some sort of firework, but not one I have seen before. It was muving too fast to be conventional fireworks.
