'cone-shaped mystery near Orion.

My son (44 yrs. old) just called from Eastern Washington state to report a "cone-shaped" something with a "head" on it.. Enormous, above and to the right of Orion. 8 p.m.

At 8:30 he called back to report this: "out-gassing cometary fragment ? gas fluoresced into greenish gas thought it might be aurora, but didn't move" He doesn't think now that it is/was a UFO.... but it was certainly a thrilling experience.

A meteor would have been fiery. Something blew up, or 'exhausted'? We could not see it from Bellevue, WA, 200 miles west of him.

Did anyone else see this?
