This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1539-2021
Observer
NameSusie R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was sitting in traffic on South Veterans Parkway, facing north, near the intersection of Lindbergh Boulevard, which is why I put the closest address as 2700 Lindbergh. I was looking nearly straight ahead when the bright greenish light falling through the sky caught my eye. It appeared to be falling almost straight downward, but veering off a little to the east. It was not super fast, but almost slow, compared to what I normally see. Eventually it disappeared. The green was like a neon-sign green, not the neon green of protective wear.
