RemarksStarted big bright green orb traveling very fast, " Look its a meteor !" i said as it got a little bit smaller , and took on a blueish glow. "thats a plane" a neighbor said as they turned to face it ( we see many planes due to the airport near by in the direction we were looking) "Look at the color thats a METEOR !" I exclaimed. "WOW" my neighbor said excited. ( the object got a little bit dimmer while turning more of a white glow as the tail began to lengthen . ( my wife's was also watching )

RemarksThe object slowed an seemed to turn a bit orange then broke in to 2 - then 3-4 orbs , then slowed and the glowing diminished and was gone. I almost expected an explosion .
