RemarksWe were driving west on Route 401 on a road that divides East Greenwich and Warwick RI. Glancing to the left we saw a large bright ball arching in the sky behind the trees in a wooded area. It appeared for a few seconds and was greenish blue in color and seemed very close to earth. From our viewpoint we did not notice any tail or sparks.
