Location: Vancouver (western sky over), moving north to south., WA, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object

The oval light was blue/grean and very bright.

We were driving west on Cascade Park Drive when we saw the light fly from north to south toward Portland, OR. It was very fast. We didn't report it at first because we thought it was ball lightning.

I have a degree from the University of Hawaii. My husband has his degree from St. Leo College. I have studied Astronomy extensively as an undergraduate. My husband is an Army Officer. There was one object seen the object seemed distant. Maybe a few miles away in the sky. At that distance I would suspect the size to be about that of a large airplane or larger. It was an elongated oval. The oval was glowing brightly with blue/green color. Backdropped by a cloudy dark sky.
