RemarksThe green ball seemed to appear suddenly out of nowhere and appeared as if it was heading straight towards the ground, like it was going to crash. At the same time it appeared it had a long orange colored squiqqly train attached to it, which disappeared at the same time the fireball disappeared. I honestly thought it was crashing into the hills bordering Cold Springs. I saw no explosion. It was quite amazing, and I was very shocked and awed by it. It looked so close it was scary.
