Observer
NameAustin G
Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy partner and I noticed it coming back from a quick evening walk. As I mentioned earlier, at first it looked like someone fired off a bad firework, but there was no sound. It was a green flash across the sky, lasting at most 3 seconds. It was so large that my partner thought it was directly over our backyard, about 10 yards away. I thought it was maybe several streets down from us. If I held a ruler up to the sky at arm's length, I would say the light was about 1/8 inch across.

RemarksI saw small lights break away from the main light, of the same green/light green color. It looked very much like a botched firework, one that didn't explode, but just fizzled out.
