RemarksIt was a long smoke train. it dissipated quickly, But it was the ball of green fire that was spectacular. It had to be the size of an airplane engine and it appeared to be hollow inside where the green fire was flaming, burning from. There was yellow sparks and a beautiful yellow, green halo around it. I was driving in a car as i watched it almost level but higher with me. Then it just dived down burning out.
