|Brilliant greenish/white object drops from sky
Turned to the southeast to survey the night sky and witnessed a brilliant white/greenish object fall straight to the horizon. The object did not appear to arch across the sky as shooting stars or satellites do. I did not see a tail or trail left by the object. The object was approximately three times the diameter of the brighest star in the sky. I did not hear any sounds. The sky was clear with many stars visible in spite of a bright moon.
Object may have been a shooting star but it was very different from others I have seen over the years due to the absence of a tail and the manner in which it appeared to move. This objec looked as if it dropped straight out of the sky.
((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor?? PD))
