Location: Henderson, NV
Shape: Fireball
Duration:.5 second
Bright Green Fireball in night sky travelling west-east over Henderson NV Food for Less parking lot 9-24-10

I was exiting a food store at Warm Springs and Sunset Rd. on the south-west corner. I looked up because something in the periphery of my vision appeared. I saw an intense green fireball traveling west to east at a very high rate of speed. I could not guess the altitude; it was about the size of my small fingernail. It appeared like it came over some houses to the west and then into the vicinity of the parking lot, where it blinked out, just before it disappeared a bright orange spark came shooting off of it. There appeared to be a hazy orange aura surrounding the fireball, which was in the shape of a square more than a ball. There was a small trail of the green material following it that disappeared when the object blinked out.

There was no sound, no smoke given off, no evidence after it disappeared. There were no aircraft in the area at all. I could not guess at the speed, it travelled over the length of the parking lot in less than half a second. It did not appear to change direction.
