This was from the 15th of Feb. I did a search for keywords in the piece . . . I found no results so I apologize if it has been posted already.

With all the recent meteor and asteroid activity thought I would share this one so that it can be added to the bunch. Hmmm, maybe we should start a thread titled "Fireball watch 2013" or something similar. This looks like it could be the remnants of a contrail in the upper atmosphere but something about it looks more akin to what I have seen of meteor trails.


NEWBERG, Oregon - On the same day as two asteroids approached earth, one actually slamming into our atmosphere, I see an object appearing much like a comet (but probably something else) was seen by myself, which means I'm probably going to embarrass myself by writing this. Fortunately, I had my HD video camcorder. Unfortunately, I did not have a tripod. My wife and I were traveling west toward Newberg just before 6pm. I saw the strange object, told my wife, and pulled our car far to the side of highway 99.

That's goodish shot of an airplane contrail heading into the evening/morning sun.

TY for embedding the vid....


Now, to the OP. I see your vid is one minute and 48 seconds. How did the object stay stationary for that long? I would think it would have made more progress in that amount of time. I'm no expert, just asking questions.

TY for posting your experience, I appreciate it....

Nice find.
But I'm sure I saw this video last year.....
Or even earlier.

Sorry to say so OP but this is just a contrail from a plane.

I saw one myself about an hour ago just before the sun went down.

Kindest respects

Yes, more than likely that's what it is. That is what the meteorologist had said. I do not always trust what they say though after uploading radar shots over the bird die-off area of a circular radar return that occured during that same time (the die-off they blamed on fireworks) only to be told by a couple meteorologists that they were not qualified to make any determination on the matter. Not qualified? Anyhow . . . go figure.

A fireball watch thread is a good idea. They are potentially as important/impactfull as geologics and weather.

That is 5 miles from my house, I live in Sherwood. Wonder what is????


Edit: after reading suggestions about an airplane contrail, I think that is pretty logical. Still cool looking!

I agree it`s the sun reflecting off of something but I wouldn`t be so sure that it`s a contrail and a plane.
The "contrail" doesn`t change size or shape, and there are no other "contrails" anywhere in the sky,only in that one spot do we see it.

It's still very much a contrail into the sun, I see them on international Atlantic bound flights all the time, since they pass right overhead, sometimes they can look even more weird if the sun catches some part of the fuselage, you get a bright beam of light, plus the contrail effect as in the video.
