Large green orb defied physics.

October 2015. Work 3rd shift, left for work approximately 11:15 pm. Drove around ¼ mile from driveway, and upon passing the end of a wooded area, my attention was drawn to my right and up, over a large, open tobacco field. (Approx. 22 acres). There was an illuminated green orb that looked akin to a Christmas tree ornament (the mirrored ball type) hovering at an estimated altitude of 1000-1500ft AGL.

The orb appeared to be 30-45ft in diameter. I would guess the distance from my vehicle horizontally to be about 150 yards, as I had to lean over the steering wheel and look up through the windshield to keep the object in view.

I witnessed the object remain at a dead stop, hovering, for about 15 seconds, before it began to accelerate away from me in a straight line. It accelerated slowly, at first, but smoothly gained speed so tremendous that before it had even reached the horizon, it disappeared. Was undoubtedly NOT natural phenomena.
