|whitish neon-green orb of light with a tail
Day/Night: Nighttime Duration: 2-3 seconds No. of Objects: Single No. of Witnesses, including self: 1 Was walking down Pacific Street toward Flatbush Ave in Brooklyn, NY. There was lots of traffic going down Flatbush. It was approximately 7:30 p.m. Within sight range as I walked, I saw a glowing whitish neon-green orb shoot through the sky, going south west, faintly lighting up the night. I stopped in my tracks. It moved as fast as a shooting star, straight on the horizon, about 30,000 ft. up (perhaps more or perhaps less; difficult to gauge). It was huge, the size of a tennis ball, perfectly spherical, and left a tail in its wake. It receded as it moved away from me in a straight line, then vanished into the darkness. Perhaps it was a piece of space junk or a meteor. I've never seen anything like it before in my life.
