While driving home on State street just East of Lancaster (we were traveling East) a bright lime/jade green "comet" appeared infront of us: distantence unknown. It fell for aprox: 6 sec and then diseapered. It was low in the sky; Started at about 40 degrees above horizon and dissappeared at about 5 or 10 degrees above horizon. The odd thing was that other than it was bright green and looked like a "falling star" It decended very slowly.

((NUFORC Note: We do not know what the military time designation of "29:00" means, but we presume it is "0400" hours, I.e. 4:00 o'clock in the morning. PD))
