Duration: 3-4 sec
No of observers: 1

Location: Courtenay (Canada), BC, Canada

Shape: Fireball
Characteristics: Aura or haze around object, Left a trail

Viewed from beach facing East on Vancouver Island. Saw what I assumed to be a meteor until listening to Art Bell on 09/23/98. The greenish object shot accross the sky, flying from WEST to EAST, and appeared to fly beyond the horizon.

I was sitting in my car on a beach near the City of Courtenay on the night in question. A streak of light appeared directly in front of my view facing East. The width of the tail seemed larger than an average meteor tail, and had a greenish blue tinge to it. The head of the source of light seemed to be fuzzy in nature, more like a fireball. The time I have given is only an estimate.
