About 4:20 a.m. Tuesday morning in the Southeast sky a bright green light caught my attention from my livingroom window. I saw one luminous green ball that started just under the clouds and fell like a falling star but much much closer. It faded out in about 3 to 5 seconds, on this side of the horizon. It was about 1/3 the size of a full moon, and about as bright. It reminded me of a roman candle in reverse.

I'm a small business owner and was up late doing bookwork in front of my french doors when I saw this. We had cloud cover last night and we live in a rural area so it was very dark out side and I checked to see if it could be a reflection of any kind. No way. I'm just curious about what it could have been. Are meteors this color?
