Shape: Cylinder
Summary : The witnessed reported to me she saw a irradescent,green,cylindar object move horizontal across the sky going South to North. She first thought it might be a shooting star, but it was moving horizontal instead of vertical. It was too low to be a plane and she didn't think it was one at all. It was consistantly in motion. It streaked across to catch a glimpse and then just vanished out of sight. The whole sighting was appoximately 1 to 2 seconds.

She was out on her deck by a pool at night. She happened look up in the night sky and saw the irredescent green shape. Temperature was normal for this time of year. Humidity was low. Sky was clear. The shape was frisbee like. Possessed no characteristics of a airplane.
