Location: Hoover, AL
|Neon green fireball with neon purple and blue tail.
I was driving from a friend’s house to go home on Caldwell Mill Road in Hoover, AL, it was around 5pm in September 2006. I was sitting in traffic and noticed a beautiful “fireball,” only the ball part was neon green, and it had a very long tail, which was neon purple and blue.
It went slowly overhead; it took about 4 minutes to go across the sky and over the trees, then disappeared from my view. It was beautiful. I have never seen anything like it before.
I looked online and watched the news to see if it was some type of meteor, but still till this day I have yet to hear anything about it.
