RemarksI have never seen a meteor or meteorite that was this big and such a bright, beautiful green or lasted so long. It looked like a small comet. It was bright with a glowing green train when it was high in the sky then after a couple seconds it got even brighter the glowing train stayed about the same length the whole time. It remained bright till it went below the tree line in my field of vision.
