Duration:3 seconds
Large greenish glowing light moving very fast.

Was on bicycle heading west. After turning right I notice a large greenish glowing light heading very fast eastbound. The object appeared about half the size of the full moon was traveling many times faster then any aircraft I’ve ever seen. The shape of the object appeared to be a sphere or ellipsoid. The altitude is unknown.

The object was first observed at about 50° above the horizon and escaped from view in about three seconds. Object almost appeared to be falling from the sky. The area has too much light pollution to observe any meteorites (though this object was way too massive to be a meteorite anyway).
