Mysterious light not so mysterious after all

JIM FORMAN / KING 5 News | September 12 2006

The calls about the light came in mostly from Pierce and Kitsap counties.

SEATTLE – Around 7:30 p.m. Monday, KING 5 News' phones started to ring as viewers reported seeing a ball of flames shooting across the skies of Western Washington.

Michael Witig and his wife were out barbecuing when they saw something streaking through the sky. They kept rolling as the fiery tail grew behind the mystery object.

Federal Aviation Administration officials in Western Washington said the light was a high-altitude jet that was leaving a contrail behind it. FAA officials say the sun was at just the right angle before sunset to reflect off the jet and create the illusion of smoke and fire.
