Large green light appeared falling from sky and disappearing behind mountains-no tail or aura present.

12/27/08 1905 E.S.T.

While traveling on Interstate 40 in a westerly direction, approximately 40 miles from the town of Newberry in South Carolina, a large green light was witnessed falling from the sky, on a slight angle from right to left, before disappearing behind the mountains. This occurred at 1905 Eastern Standard Time. The object witnessed was larger than a falling star, and had no tail common with a falling meteor. The object was visualized by two individuals on a return trip to Tennessee from South Carolina, traveling towards Asheville. Following this occurrence a call was made to 911. The call was taken in two counties as the object was witnessed while traveling across county lines. The dispatcher showed great interest in the observation and transferred the call, after many questions, to the adjoining counties dispatcher. The dispatcher reported that he would contact local airports to inquire about planes or possible crashes in the area.

The object itself was large, green in color, and moved quickly, dropping from high in the sky, no tail, no other colors, and made no sound. Dropping behind the mountains there was no sound, no explosion.
