Date: January 11,2013
Time: 6:20 a.m.
Number of witnesses: 1
Number of Objects: 1
Shape of Objects: Round with a long tail.
Full Description of Event/Sighting: I had just gotten onto the freeway, going eastbound, on my way to work at 6:20 a.m., when I saw a large ball falling falling from the sky from the southeast.
It was mainly bright yellow in color (fiery), with a green outline and it had a long green tail trailing behind it. It looked like a burning comet with a long tail, and I lost sight of it as it fell behind a hill.
Additional Information: The below follow-up was done by a fellow who is helping me out. It is greatly appreciated.
Hi, I take the Mount Lehman exit onto #1, eastbound towards Agassiz in the morning.
It was a clear morning, and cold. I think my car said it was -2, but it was dry for a change. I have noticed the stars on a few mornings in the last couple weeks, they are still very bright at 6:30, if it isn't raining or snowing.
The week before I am sure that I saw at least 3, very bright shooting stars one morning.
I got to work and even asked my co-worker, who drives from Chilliwack to Agassiz, if she saw these shooting stars, and she did.
I thought that was pretty neat, and then on Friday, I saw this thing, it was very bizarre! I was just getting onto the highway and on the left side of my car (I think that is north, not south as I initially mentioned).
The Abbotsford airport would be on my right, on the south side of the freeway.
It was pretty large, not like a shooting star that looks like it is so small and far away.
This was pretty big, and very bright, and it had a very long glowing tail.
It was as big as a car and it was as if it was a movie, with this bright comet, falling from the sky. It took me off guard, and I looked around to see if anyone around me noticed it. Kind of silly, because it's pitch black and anyone around is in a car, zooming by.
If it did hit the ground, I think it would be somewhere around the Mission bridge? I didn't hear anything, but my window's are all closed and the radio is blaring. It was very odd!
When I got home from work, I looked online to see if I could find anything out about a comet, or something that may have been seen by an anyone else, or was supposed to be in the sky that morning, but I didn't find anything.
That is when I came across your website. Thanks for listening, and I would sure be interested if anybody else saw this!
