Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
Like a shooting star lightening brightly around us, going fast north-south, but close to earth, silently

In the sky, like a shooting star, white-green-fluorescent color, silent, we saw going from the nord to the south, it took 5-6 seconds to disapeer from our sight inthe south (the forest blocking our view) I tought it was a shooting star but too close to earth, and it lighted the sky and around us, and throug the forest at our left in front of the house, we were in the street. Our place is very wooded, with mountains, good view of the sky and stars at night. Was it a meteorite? Have no idea... Can a meteorite lighten around us like that?
