23DEC2011 Deborah Cooper Ashford, Wa. USA 17:15:00 About 10-12 sec from the south to the north, traveling as if in an arc this was a huge glowing greenish blue ball, it appeared to hit into Mount Beljeka, just NW of Mt Rainier. This is the 2nd one to travel the path and hit in the same spot. The first one (the smaller of the 2) flashed a brilliant white when it "appeared" to hit. As bright as the sun, but greenish blue in color No fragments seen Absolutely awesome. These are way bigger than any shooting star or meteor I have ever seen.
