Summary : close oval white object transforms self to a circular green object - both had trails of same color

looking out my 16th floor window facing south; at 0157 on june 24th i saw an object appear less than a football field away at eye level. object was oval in shape white self luminous with a separate and white trail. the object was quivering and at the same time seemed to be stretching and contracting on itself. then starting at the front tip a green color enveloped the object traveling front to back with a sharp demarcation line. when finished the object was noted to have changed to a green self luminous circular object. the object then weaved its way between the high rises toward the bay and then angling itself up like someone flipped a switch the light went out -it vanished.note: this object should have crossed right in front of me but didn't. instead it appeared off my left heading east with it's trail flowing behind. it just suddenly appeared thereand immediately these changes started to occur.observer background: 45 years old female didn't really believe in ufo's until i saw what i saw ! i enjoy looking at the moon and stars at night and since jan of this year i have seen 4 of this objects 3 green and 1 white . until 6/24/97 when i saw one at such close range i was telling myself they were meteorites. i have to say in addition that this was so clear to me it almost seemed suureal. i'm a nurse by profession.
