Location: Maple Valley, WA
Shape: Other
Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
larger slower shooting star like object that I can confirm a situation to research!

Left side of moon, below about 2 inches from the moon when viewing from earth, I witnessed what appeared to be a shooting star at first until I realized it was slower & larger. It alarmed me because it was so close to earth.

I am asking my friend to take me towards it in his helicopter to check it out being that I have only heard a woman heard a large boom near Spokane, WA.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke very briefly with this witness, and we encouraged her to try to get a photograph, and to arrange to have other witnesses look at the object. PD))
