Reports Report 1417a (Event 1417-2018)

Name Colby W
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks It was quite large glowing bright green and flame like ball with a tail as it fell at an angle from the sky. I was driving when it caught my eye. Lasted a short period of time maybe 5 seconds. From my perspective it looked like it had to of touched earth not to far away from my location; maybe a few miles but then again eyes are decieving.. My radio was on in my car so I'm not sure if there was any sounds or noises associated with it. I look up at the sky/stars all the time. It's mesmerizing; I absolutely love it! Although, i only know as much as the average person when it comes to astronomy overall. Local businesses may have been able to catch it on camera such as The Chewelah Casino. I just know it was amazing to witness and glad I got to see it.
