Viewed bright elliptical object descending in the north sky.

I am a 41 y.o. female. This is my 2nd sighting. I was driving north on 15th N.E. and 175th St. I was stopped at the light on 175th St. I very quickly observed in the sky directly in front of me an elliptical shaped, very bright object that went from one point downward at about a 40 degree angle and then out of sight. I first thought it was a meteor but it seemed to be very bright and it wasn't very dark out yet. It went down from the right to the left.


Witness is correct in her description of events. Many other reports for the fireball seen on this St. Patrick's Day. It appears to have been quite high in the atmosphere, and it may have been a meteor. However, that is only a guess. PD
