Posted: 8/4/2017
Location: Columbus (North), GA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 3 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Green streak, growing in size, moving from west to east, at about + 600ft elevation over I-185. looking south toward the Columbus, GA, airport.

Light was small, at first, and then began to grow in length moving to the east. Appeared to have oval shape at eastern side of the trail; with skinnier diminishing trail to the west.

Light flowed smoothly across the sky with no jerky motions and was completely silent.

Observed the sky in the area for about 3-4 minutes, with no other lights observed in the sky.

The streak of slow moving light appeared to be thicker than should be expected at that height (in comparison to shooting stars I have seen in the past).

Did not appear to be a light from the airport or a green laser.
