Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Light/Fireball heading towards earth, 9 PM, Rutland Vermont, Whitish-Green streak of light behind and no explosion.

Around 9:30 PM I happened to glance quickly out a large widow that faces southwest, when I suddenly saw a fireball/light streak across the sky. It looked to be relatively high up, to be honest I thought it was a plane crashing when I first saw it because there's an airport nearby. There was no noticeable noise being emitted. It was bright white and left a long whitish-green streak of light or vapor behind it which dissipated about 10 minutes later. I didn't see or hear any explosion, I also could not tell where it landed because of how dark it was outside. It was definitely not a meteor either, I've seen many meteor showers and this did not look like one at all.
