Observer
NameJerry L
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI opened my back door to let my cat in, my backyard has a wide viewing angle of the sky. I often see meteor showers due to the dark wide open area. Tonight something that had a strange color caught my attention. I saw a light green object travel from left to right from my point of view on a sharp trajectory towards the ground. It seemed fairly low so my view of it was brief, it passed behind the roof level of the houses behind me. I was inside, with my glass storm door closed, so I could not hear if there were any sounds.
