Duration:5 seconds
Bright green light hovering in the sky then shoots across short distance and disappears completely from the sky.

My husband is an over the road truck driver and we were passing through Poteau, OK, at approx. 01:43 CST when out of the corner of my eye I saw a green light that seemed to zigzag. I looked in the direction of the light and saw a almost perfectly green light hovering in the sky. It hovered for approximately 3 seconds in which time I alerted my husband, who was driving.

All of a sudden the light shot across a short distance then disappeared completely from the sky. There was no trailing light or tail and it was too large to be a shooting star.

We watched the sky for another 15-20 minutes but didn't see any sign of the bright green light or anything else. It wasn't like a neon green or even a bright bright green. It was about the color of spring grass but bright.

I have never saw anything like it and neither has my husband.
