Observer
NameDouglas W
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis falling object looked very large or very close, seemed slower than a "shooting star" as it was visible for a longer time, and it was extremely bright. The light directly around the object was green and/or blue, irregular and resembled flames, which tapered behind it in a very long white tail. Both my wife and I saw it at the same time and gasped in amazement, and then we both turned and asked each other, "DID YOU SEE THAT??!"
