Reported: 2013-11-14 13:39 Pacific
Duration: 60 seconds
No of observers: 1

Location: Graham, WA, USA

Shape: Fireball
Characteristics: Lights on object

I witnessed a large, orange, silent fireball just under the cloud cover that moved slowly and disappeared up into the clouds.

I stepped out of my front door in Graham, WA, at about 6:25 pm Sunday November 10th. There was a cloud cover but no rain or wind.

I immediately noticed a large, bright, round, orange ball of light just under the cloud cover and about 1/2 mile away from me to the west. The ball flickered like fire and barely moved forward casting an orange glow on the underside of the clouds above it. When it moved it bobbled slightly instead of staying in a smooth trajectory. It made absolutely no sound and was about 90% from the horizon.

The fireball was approximately the size of a full moon. The light began to fade and I realized it was moving up into the cloud cover and then disappeared. The whole sighting lasted about one minute.

I am a 66 year old retired person who has lived in the area of Joint Base Lewis McChord all my life and quite used to regular aircraft. I told a pilot friend of mine about the sighting and he had no idea as to what it could be.
