|bright green comet or unidentified object that appeared to crash into the Earth
Tonight, I was looking out of my window to the Northwest and I saw what first appeared to be a plane crashing.
The object was traveling from West to East and was North of West Haven. As I continued to watch the object, it seemed as though it was going way too fast to be a plane crashing. My second thought was that it was a comet or shooting star. It had a tail similar a shooting star. But I have never seen a shooting star as close to the Earth or appear to crash in the distance like this did.
As the object approached the horizon, The light went from a bright white to a much brighter green flying behind hills in the distance. It appeared to have crashed several miles in the distance. I would say that the size was much bigger than the largest star in the sky and the trail was about as wide as the moon.
