My friend and I were walking the Ruston Way waterfront in the north end of Tacoma, WA around ~8:30 PST and we both just happened to look up and we both saw a big firey ball fly across the sky and it was way too fast to be a plane and it was gone in like 3 or 4 seconds.

Renton, Washington arrived from google.com on "Latest Worldwide Meteor/Meteorite News: Hobart Tasmania Australia Massive Green fireball 26JAN2011" by searching for meteors seen on Jan 26 2011.

You may have seen a meteor in the Philippines at 9:00 pm, but certainly not the same one. Congrats! Hope your wish comes true.

BTW, please make an official report about your meteor sighting to the AMS: http://www.amsmeteors.org/fireball2/form2.php

Thanks!

I'm pretty sure I had a pretty big meteorite weighing about 80 pounds what do I do with that I live in Tacoma Washington

Where would I go to make sure the rock I found is a meteorite ? A testing facility near Tacoma Washington?
