The flaming orange object was seen from Prosser to the Spokane area and was likely part of the Lyrid meteor shower that climaxed Wednesday, said Peter Davenport, director of the National UFO Reporting Center in Seattle. Even the Missoula emergency dispatch line was flooded with calls, Davenport said. Many eyewitnesses said it was bigger than they imagined possible. Based on two reports out of Spokane, Davenport said the meteor appeared "larger than the disk of a full moon" and had "some kind of peculiar green tail behind it."
