Duration:1 hour
Green sphere obsereved in southwest virginia

I was walking my dogs and started watching the end of a fireworks display when I noticed a green sphere off in the northeastern sky far from where the display was going on. Put the dogs away and just watched the sphere from my pouch through a set of power lines.

The green object changed altitudes several times as viewed through the power lines then turned to a glowing red and sped off the northwest. It reappeared after a few minutes to the previous position and turned back to a green color where it stayed for a while.

After the display was over the object turned red and shot straight up in the sky.

I need to mention the weather, which was solid low cloud cover with no stars visible and thunder storm clouds with some variable amounts of sheet lighting.
