Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Green-blue streak over nightime ocean

Unusually wide, green-blue streak spotted going down over horizon, seen in night-sky looking west from diamond head in the direction of Barber’s Point, although possibly still over the sea. Too fast to be a plane, seemed unusually wide and green a streak to be a meteor.

Also, from my viewpoint, seemed to take a perfectly sharp turn at an approximate 90° angle in flight before disappearing. If this was a meteor bouncing off the stratosphere it really bounced. Glowing steadily, however, and there seemed to be no visual flare-up that which one might expect of the higher atmospheric density that would cause a deflection. Am I wrong?
