Shape: Fireball
Duration:4 or 5 seconds
A bright green fireball flew across the sky. It was about the size of the full moon and looked much brighter.

A bright green fireball with green sparks trailing it, streaked across the sky for about 5 seconds. It was approximately the size of the moon but brighter. The sky was clear with just a few scattered clouds. For a moment the object passed behind a medium sized cloud and lit up the cloud like a light bulb. The fireball seemed to be flying parallel with the ground. I've saw hundreds of shooting stars and this was nothing like anything i have ever saw. I hope i didnt leave off any important information. This was the most unbelieveable thing i've ever saw in the night sky. :)
