|Strange glowing green object falling from the sky.
This happened a little over an hour ago, so this report is fresh in my mind. Just around 7 pm, I was driving my car north on highway 24 approximately 2 or 3 miles out of Newington, GA. I was changing the station on my radio, which had a lot of static. I don't know if this is significant, but it was more static than usual, even for our remote area.
I then saw a bright green light to the east, falling at a fairly steep angle towards the North Carolina state line, maybe a little closer. The light fell at a very fast rate, faster than any falling star I've ever seen. It was also larger than a falling star or meteor I have seen. It didn't have a trail, so I highly doubt it was a comet. It was visible for approximately 6 seconds. I would assume that it was approximately 1000 feet in altitude. It disappeared fairly close to the tree line across the field I saw the light appear above.
