Meteor/fireball over E.WA.

Just saw a green fireball moving east to west over the Pullman, WA. Area at 1:30am on March 20th 2017. I was watching tv and heard a series of muffled bangs or thuds from outside and I couldn't tell which direction the noises were coming from so I looked out my window and spotted a large bright brilliant green meteor with a long tail moving across the sky over my apartment. It was north of Pullman out towards Albion WA. Did anyone else see it? And yes the faint noises were from it passing over.

Stationary flashes

Saturday 18th March, 11:00pm NZ time. Dunedin Saw 2 bright flashes directly up, slightly north, about 3 seconds between them and a finger distance apart. No movement at all and nothing afterwards like a satellite. Thoughts?

Green Firework looking Light - Fell from sky

On Thursday, March 16 2017 my two daughters (15 & 13) and I were driving home from dance. We were driving down East Main drive in Sammamish, WA right before we turned into our neighborhood. It was around 9:40PST. And we all saw, what we thought was fireworks falling from the sky. The light was green streaks with a bright light. It looked really close, bright and it looked as if it fell right behind one of the houses. I'm still unsure if it's what everyone else saw. Or if it was fireworks. All 3 of us saw it, and joked that it was aliens landed in our neighborhood. I've never seen anything like it before. Whatever it was, it was pretty amazing!

Strange light in sky

I live just south of detroit...suburbs downriver(Lincoln Park). I also saw a very large bright light on March 16th around 830 or 9 p.m. I thought it might be a plane at first. It showed up out of nowhere as bright as the brightest star( like the only one we see in the sky here because of all the lights)and about the same size. I was facing South. The light moved east to west...travelled for a min in a line then dipped down out of sight like it just fell. Stayed the same brightness the entire time and didn't hear anything. Though it was strange..definitely not a plane, more like a moving star, or meteorite.

Shooting brightstar

I am from Mitcham Victoria Australia and was coming home about 1015-1030 pm as I came from the car in my driveway I saw low down to the North and travelling east a very bright star which disappered behind higher up houses. My daughter and son-in-law also saw this.

Large streaking object with tail - Canada interior BC Mar 17/17

Tonight I saw a fireball with a tail like a comet streak across the sky. I was in Oyama, BC and it appeared in the south sky. The ball was bigger than a full moon, 5 times as big at least. It flashed across like a shooting star then disappeared. I wonder if anyone else saw it. It was 9:40pm PST Mar 16/17. I've never seen anything like it. Hot and fiery. Quite amazing. It didn't seem to land, just disappear. As I'm typing this my son saw another one at or just after 10:30pm PST same night. Another friend saw it at that same time South Sky from Rutland, BC. A person in Kamloops and a person in West Kelowna, BC saw what they thought was a lighteneinf flash at that time but no storm and clear skies. Prob just saw the edge of it. I've never seen anything so large or like it. Fireworks blast but that wasn't it. It was moving fast and disappeared fast.

Bright Meteor and Flash last night Deming, WA

I saw a bright fireball with a large flash of light over Racehorse Mt behind our house. It appeared to fall almost vertical with the main fireball dropping and finally exploding in blue to orange. There was a good tracer that lingered and the flash of light was green. It lot up the whole sky just before 10:00pm Pacific Time. Really beautiful the way it lot up the top of the snow covered mountain. This was in Deming, WA on Thursday eve, March 16, 2017.

Meteor

At around 9:00 pm pacific, I was driving with a buddy and in the sky right in front of us we saw this huge streak then it slowed down turned green and it looked like we were watching some object, probably a meteor, entering the atmosphere. it looked like a firework as we watched it burn up. the whole thing seemed to last a pretty long time, a full couple of seconds maybe. the whole thing was pretty insane, i had just smoked a fat backwood, i'm glad my friend was there to confirm i wasn't just hallucinating.

Light above melbourne

I was looking outdoors and see a big yellows light. Normally ts not strange because we get a lot of planes flying over head. But this one wa different. No lights flashing, it went off course slightly. When I got the chance I ran and got my telescope, came back or was still there, but blinked a second and it dimmed and disappeared. Then a huge silent flash in the northern suburbs happened. That's it. Not sure if anyone else saw...

Silver object moving across sky.

Approx 9:45 pm (16th march- wakefield , nelson), my daughter and i watched a silver object(like a star) move from one side of the sky to the other - some zigzag movements at first , but then straight. At one point , there were 2 very bright silver flashes from a stationary star as the other one passed by. As the object went into the distance , we could see another green light beside the silver light. Then it was gone ... all this probably took place in 2 minutes.

Meteor

I live in Bremerton Wasshington, USA. My wife and I were watching TV, near very large windows facing East looking over a lake. It was after 900 pm pdt, 3/16/17. We both noticed a blue green light and vapor tail, looked closer than most I'd ever seen, streaking in the North East sky going East. It was beautiful and romantic. I almost spoiled the moment though by saying it could have been space junk.
