Posted: 10/10/2011
Location: Moses Lake, WA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 second
Not the typical meteor burning through the atmosphere. A huge fireball with a short tail.

I saw a huge bright white fireball falling out of the sky.

From my location it was about 5 degrees west of North on my compas.

It was about the size of an outdoor flood light at 100’ away.

The length of the tail was only about 5 times the size of the ball.

It was visible for a little more than a second.
