Duration:10 seconds
White orb speeding across the sky in eastern Washington.

My girlfriend and I stepped out on the front porch to smoke. We spotted a single glowing odd white light moving east to west at an incredible speed. It maintained a single altitude and went from horizon to horizon in under 10 seconds. It was completely silent. I estimated the altitude at 4-5,000 feet. There was a tail behind the object. It seemed to glow, and the event left us both in awe and shaken. It was almost disturbing due to the unnatural nature of the event.

((NUFORC Note: Many reports to news media. Possible meteor, we suspect. PD))
