object looked like shooting star it turned green and glowing as it came closer to the ground increasing in size.

I seen what at first appeared to be a shooting star falling in the east vering to north slightly in a streight line. Usually they fade out pretty high up in the sky.

But this one kept coming closer and closer. The bright light I at first seen suddenly turned a bright green and increased in size to say about the size of a full moon at the highest point in the sky. It continued to fall until it was almost to the ground where I couldn't see it anymore it appeared to be about 18 feet from the ground. The height of a train car that was in front of me. From my line of vision it appeared to have gone down very close by.


We spoke with this witness at length, and she sounded quite serious minded and credible. PD
