Observer
NameJeannette D
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI did not see point of origin as it descended and appeared from the top frame of my window. I was especially surprised by a green flash or green glow appearing (for a split second) as a "bow wave" (like ships have) before the next split second this gold ball with a wide vertical tail. Ended dark (flamed out?) prior to horizon.
