Shape: Fireball

A green fireball fell from the sky in the distance, with no trail or tail.

I saw a green fireball falling from the sky last Thursday evening, very early Friday at 3 in the morning.

I was sitting outside of a Starbucks with my friends talking like we regularly do. I was sitting with a clear view of the eastern sky, and a view of the northern sky that was blocked off by the building. It was very cloudy and humid, but otherwise a nice tolerable night.

I was looking at one friend explaining a documentary, when over his right shoulder in the sky, I saw a green fireball with no trail or tail fall toward the ground from the sky. It appeared from behind a cloud, disappeared behind another cloud as it descended, reappeared, and finally disappeared for the final time amongst the clouds.

It travelled at the speed of like a spark that falls from fireworks, or a descending flare. All in all, after doing research I am positive this wasn't a meteor or anything of the sort. None of it seems to fit the bill of what I saw.

For informational purposes, I am a 21 year old college student.
