Remarks As I was driving I looked up and saw a bright green light racing through the sky. I immediatley stopped to watch. At first I thought that this was a falling star but with the duration of the fall and the size of the object I just knew that it wasn\'t. I had never seen such a site...scary and beautifully exciting all at once. It was not falling completely straight it had a bit of an arch to it. It was close but not close enough to analyze it anymore than I did. The train did not appear for very long. It eventually disappeared and all together fireball and all just disintegrated into what looked like ash.
Terminal flash
ObservationNo
RemarksThe train towards the end of falling was no longer visable. Once the train was gone the object broke into pieces and seemed to disintegrate into ash.
