Green Fireball over Western Shore of Maryland

A bright green fireball came from the south at a low altitude and arced across the sky from a southerly direction to a northerly direction.

The object appeared in the uppermost part of our car windshield (we were at the top of a hill heading east within a half mile of and toward Chesapeake Bay. By leaning forward, I was able to follow its path until it abruptly disappeared shortly after appearing on the driver's side window of the car.

The fireball was bright grass green with a trail of pale green fading to lighter green to white light. The sighting lasted about 5 seconds. The driver did not look up fast enough to see it. (the side windows are not tinted - this helped to confirm that the green color was not from the windshield)




NUFORC Note:

Possible meteor?? PD
