West to east
Facing north up 7th Street toward North Mountain
A large distinctly green light that fell and looked almost like a meteorite but seemed too large and too bright in the pre-dusk daylight. I saw a short tail as it streaked a short distance to disappear in the clouds.
Large sort of phosphorescent green fattish "falling star" that disappeared in the clouds (never saw it descend to earth) just as a short "tail" sparked and also disappeared.
HEIGHT & SPEED:
Hard to say. Seemed to end in clouds and move more slowly than a "typical" shooting start.
