Duration: 5-7 seconds
Characteristics: The object changed color
Shimmering bluish/green flash in the southeastern sky

At approx. 10:23 p.m. on 9/7/02 there was a bright white flash of light. Then a 'streak' of shimmering bluish/green light, reminiscient of fireworks, that was from my perspective the width of my thumb (1/2 inch). The streak lasted approx. 2 seconds then 'pooled' into a yellowish/red light and winked out. I was heading south and this appeared in the southeastern sky approximately 38 degrees up from the horizon. I would say that the flash covered approx. 10-12 degrees of arc in the sky.
