Location: Dublin (North County) (Republic of Ireland),
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 5 seconds
Two consecutive flashes of strong bright light accompanied by a cigar shaped illuminous green object traversing the night sky at incredible speed.

I was bringing the dog out for his usual late night walk. Suddenly the entire village was illuminated by a flash of white light, this was immediately followed by another even stronger flash of light. The light was so strong that the street lighting was no longer noticeable. I looked up see where the light was coming from but could not see directly because of the buildings in my line of sight. All of a sudden a massive florescent green cigar shaped object (about the size of a train carraige) flashed across the night sky at approx. 35,000ft. It was travelling in a downward diagonal from northeast to southwest, such was its speed that it traversed the entire sky in a matter of seconds. All the while there was no sound, no vapour trail and it maintained its colour and form. Immediately after this object vanished the birds started to go wild in the trees. I would be greatful if anyone with a similar experience could email me.
