|At 00:50 on 5/4/02, a bright green circle was observed moving N by an observer traveling NE at 60mph.
I was driving north on Rte. 22A in VT, behind several cars and trucks, averaging 60 mph. My teenage daughter was asleep in the passenger seat. Just south of Bridport, VT, as I was coming up a rise, a brilliant emerald green circle appeared at the top of my windshield (coming from behind us). As it moved it left a slight green trail behind it. My car's compass was reading NE, and the object came at a slight angle from right to left, so I estimate it was moving N (this would put it above Lake Champlain). The duration of the event was no more than 1 second. By the time I reached the top of the hill (about 100 yds), the object had disappeared. I had a clear view of several miles, with clear skies.
