There were citizen reports of a fireball trailing smoke over the North County area tonight at sundown. Reports are from as far away as Bellingham and they say it appeared over Ferndale, Birch Bay and Lynden (all different opinions due to different vantage points).
No official word from local emergency services. There have been multiple reports of downed aircraft in the last month with no evidence of a crash site found in every occurrence.
Speculation is now that this was something breaking through the earth’s atmosphere. Reports have been heard from scattered locations around the Puget Sound.
