Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 seconds
A large green glowing round object was seen flying above the Birmingham, Alabama area at 5:30 pm on November 28, 2006.

Around 5:30 pm November 28 a neighbor and I saw a ball of fire streaking thru the sky. It came from the west and was heading eastward. It was not very high in the sky, maybe a mile up, and it was much larger than a plane. It was round, light green in color and surrounded with a glowing white light. It had a tail similar to that of a comet.

It traveled at a very slow speed and it never burned out (we thought it might be a shooting star). It kept flying eastward. We watched it about 30 seconds until it flew over the tree line. Later that night I heard on the news that it was a meteor but the next day the local news called it a UFO becuase they were not sure what it was. The news said NASA had no signs of meteors in our area when this object was spotted. The news said that many people saw it in our area.
