Our bedroom windows face northeast with view towards WA. Appx 5:30 AM was awake with my back to the window, a white light seemed to explode in the room - very faint sound -thought it was an accident, went outside, was silent and clear Estacada,

Alby, I saw this on the way home from dropping my wife off for work. Seem to take forever to get home and grab my camera, and it was fairly light before I got my shot. Wish we could get confirmation from an astronomer.

I saw a different meteor...on Feb 18, Monday night approx 10:10-10:15 pm. Tigard- very low in the sky, close... almost like a comet or firework- like a burning fireball giving off sparks. I got the impression it was going to hit earth- it was small
