Characteristics: The object left a trail
Silent flaming yellow-green object

Last night, July 11,2001, I was sitting in my chair by my patio door watching the news come on when I saw a VERY BRIGHT object go from NW to SE almost directly above (Not along the horizon.) It looked like a ball with a tail but the tail was as bright as the ball and flamed behind. It was the brightest color I have ever seen and was a yellow yellow-green color but had a flourescent look to it. If you hold out your arm with the back of your hand to you, that would be it's size. (the back of your hand and wrist) It made no sound, but I felt funny inside as it flew over, hard to describe that. I got out of my chair quickly and went outside but it was already out of view behind trees. It was awsome.

((NUFORC Note: Witness states date of July 11, but enters date of July 13. We do not know which is the correct date of the event, but will attempt to confirm it. PD))
