Bright fireball over Washington state
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, June 04, 2004 4:24 AM
Did anyone see the fireball very early Thursday morning? If so, did you see the direction of travel? Hear any noise?

Apparently about 2:30 AM, it lit-up the entire landscape.
It made the local news.

My sister claims the noise woke her up. I was up and ironically probably on this web site. I did hear some noise that sounded like a muscle car revving the engine for about 5-10 seconds (it is very possible that it was a car I heard).
