Reported: 9/19/2006 11:45:42 PM 23:45
Posted: 10/30/2006
Location: Livermore, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 to 2 min
I saw a very large flourescent green fireball explode in the sky over the area of the Lawrence Livermore Lab. It exploded three times getting larger each time. Them it swept to the west (parallel to Hwy 580w) and I saw a long red hot tail (which appeared as if millions of small pieces of red all grouped together and emitting from the bright green fire ball)at least four times the size of the fireball which continued to glow and appeared to soar north (north of 580) before dropping out of sight. I see a lot of shooting stars but I was in awe to see this,

I wasn't sure if it was a rocket or meteorite or some sort of vehicle breaking through the lasted a long time.

I searced the newspapers, but found nothing mentioned regarding it. Though, I'm sure the Lab must have had it in it's radar.

I am a fifty year old female, and have been seeing ufos for years, but never something glowing so brightly.. was it a shooting star VERY close? I'm not so certain.
