… it might have been. Our hotline received two voicemails from people who saw what looked like a meteor or fireball around 7:35 pm. Looking around online, we saw a Reddit mention of a sighting from Ballard. We asked around on Twitter, and got replies including:
I saw it. At 7:37 I was heading WB on the bridge and super bright glowing green thing fell from sky to the NW then flamed out.

I was rowing on Lake Washington and saw it above UW stadium. It was green and burnt out in about 4 seconds. It was amazing.

We are in the throes of the Orionid meteor shower. It peaked this past weekend but it lasts a couple more weeks.
