Shape: Other
Duration:3 seconds
Just before sunset a huge green/yellow streak of light shot accross the sky (north-east) so fast and disappeared without a trace left.

Sky was a blue/gray just before sunset(not dark yet)...A quite large streak of light almost like a shooting star but it was not a shooting star at all, fired accross the sky way too fast to be a plane or anything else like a jet...etc and too slow to be a shooting star.It started off blue in the front with green tail but turned green front and yellow/green tail. I think it was heading north-east to east direction. It streaked and then just disappeared into nothing, no trace of anything in the sky. There was no planes or anything else in the sky that caught my attention. The object itself was very clear except it had a blurry tint around the whole thing. It seemed like when it shot off it started a little slower than when it took off at the end.

((NUFORC Note: Four major, very bright fireballs were reported to an astronomer in Saskatoon, SK, in Canada for this date for between 0759 hrs., 22JA01, and 0010 hrs., 23JA01. PD))
