brilliant green object going down S.W. of Bristol

I was hanging sheetrock and just happened to see a brilliant green flash out the window, to the s>w of Bristol.It was the brightest light I have ever seen in the night sky. I cant rule out a meteor, due to the objects tragectory which was approx. 30 degrees to the horizon and went down really slow from my point of view. It was truly a fantastic sight, large, round ,green ,bright and dropping smaller fragments, also burning green.

Hey Peter,

Tom Sheets SD in Georgia here. Last night, Sunday 17June, about 10:30PM, a large spectacular bluish meteor sailed thru the skies over Atlanta and in particular, Lawrenceville, which is a few miles NE of the metro area. Witness reported a UFO to the SE over Lawrenceville. By luck, our MUFONGA Deputy Director of Investigations also lives in Lawrenceville and was outside at about 10:30PM and saw the same thing. He advised me that it was definitely a the event you get any reports. Best Tom Sheets
