Dear Mr. Davenport,

Had problems filing the report I promised in our phone conversation, and I do not know if it went through, so I decided to email to you - just in case.

Here is the report I attempted to file:

While driving North on 43rd Ave just before Thunderbird Rd. my wife, my oldest son, and my self saw an object streaking across the sky, East to West, with incredible velocity, before it vanished into thin air. It looked like a giant fireball (25% to 50% the size of a full moon) burning green, such as a computer monitor LED green. It came in at a very low angle to the ground maybe 20 degrees, at the most, and traveled an arc of at least 45 degrees (I had mentioned 30 to 35 degrees in my phone call, but using the reference points of the windshield it was at least 45 degrees) in a second or two, with what appeared to be a long fire trail. The object then disappeared. It did not seem to burn out, but just extinguished. It appeared so close I rolled my window down to listen to the impact, but I never heard one.

Sincerely,

((name and e-address deleted))

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with both the husband and wife, and they sounded exceptionally credible and sincere to us. We forgot to ask the time of the incident, but will verify that issue in the near future. PD))
