Fireball lights up skies across region

Compiled from wire services -

Kennewick _ The skies over Eastern Washington were lit up
Wednesday night by a giant fireball.

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."
