Reports Report 3955aw (Event 3955-2017)

Name Jennifer L
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks We have a expansive, unobstructed perfect view out our living room windows looking westward across the Hood Canal to the Olympics. The fireball streaked across the sky out of nowhere while we watched tv, and we actually thought one of the fishing trawlers sent a distress flare up that was landing in the canal because it was *that* bright and intense - just like a concentrated firework, except the color was not red, it had a greenish hue to its white color (and the trajectory wasn’t like a distress flare) I certainly wish I had been staring at the windows to get a better capture of exact data.
