PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- A flaming meteor in the night sky could be seen in Oregon -- with reported sightings from Marion to Washington counties -- Saturday night.
Note that it's the white orb to the left of the larger light, which is a street light.
OMSI Planetarium Manager Jim Todd told KOIN 6 News the meteor was a combination of a "fireball and space junk."
Todd said the fireball was visible for 7 seconds. He described it as being "a minus 10 on the brightness scale," which according to the International Comet Quarterly is nearly as bright as the full moon.
A Keizer man captured the meteor on video Saturday night.
