Incredible...full moon sized bright orange fireball in the North sky near Mt.Adams..fell straight down and exploded..2 small fire-balls flew off of it .I was certain it was a plane crash and pulled off of the road(I was driving a hay-truck).The object left a greenish haze in the sky for minutes after the explosion ! I called Goldendale Observatory and reported to them . Has anyone else reported a similar siting ??STUNNING!

I was driving with my husband ,Dr.Rob Schwartz and my 9 year old son..we were picking up a load of alfalfa hay in Centerville (near Goldendale)I was looking at the night sky with my son...we were spacing out...when suddenly a HUGE fireball...bright orange..fell straight down out of the sky...we compared it in size to a full moon sized object...2 pieces of fire broke off of the top left of the object and everything vanished ,leaviung behind a greenish haze for minutes...I thought a jet had exploded...we pulled off to see if rescue helicopters or airplanes would fly in...nothing...I reported the siting of what I think/thought was a superb meteor to the Goldendale Observatory...whatever it was extraordinary...I am on zero medication/s...had not had a drink ,have no medical conditions etc...
