Duration:5 seconds
my husband and i were returning from son's home, heading northeast on state route 598, around l0 p.m. when i saw a bright green fireball crossing the sky at a very gradual leveling. the color was what was almost a christmas green. sparks showered from it 2 or 3 times, then it vanished. i was trying to get my husband tosee it, but he missed it. (he has severe sight problems.) It looked a lot like one of those firecrackers on july4th that are big and round. it was probably 2 to 3 miles ahead of me, crossing from my right to my left, heading north. the sparks falling downward were white.there was no noise. it just disappeared, as if it shut the light out.
