BRIGHT GREEN LIGHT "ZIPS" DOWN ACROSS SKY TOWARDS HORIZON Monday, April 2002

My name is ((name deleted)). I am a 23 year old ((profession deleted)) who lives in the Greenlake area of Seattle, WA. I have lived in Seattle for close to five years.

I was looking at the eastern horizon/sky for a moment at around ten minutes to 10:00 PM on Monday evening (April 29), when I saw a bright green light zip down across the sky towards the horizon (at a twenty degree angle) from above and North. The light was vey bright (although far away) and didn't leave any sort of trail even though it was traveling amazingly fast. So fast that it was gone in a second or two. I described it's size first as 1/15th the size of the moon, but after more thought I think a more accurate description would be four times the size of the North Star.

It was a very curious sight that I am glad I was able to witness.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and he sounded quite credible. Please see other report from Seattle for this event. PD))
