Observer
NameBecky D
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI saw it overhead as I was driving north. It entered my field of vision from the left, heading generally north east for about 2 seconds, then it disappeared. It looked like the light from a plane in the sky, but a bit brighter and very green. There was a police car parked up by the traffic light so I stopped to tell him about it, but he hadn't seen it. I wonder if anyone else saw it. (My astronomy experience is very limited, from a college class I took about 35 year ago.)
