Location: Hollywood, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:6 - 8 seconds
Viewed a green "fireball" fall from the sky.

I live in the hills above Hollywood and was sitting in front of our large floor-to-ceiling living room picture windows which faces south over Hollywood. I was minutes away from viewing Rivera Live on CNBC which starts at 21:00, that's how I took note of the time. I was looking out the picture window into the sky as I often do checking out the helicopters and airplane lights in the distance when all of a sudden what looked like a falling star fell about a 1/2 a mile in front of me falling from the North to the Southeast. It was green "fireball" emitting a gold haze with a gold tail. It fell for approx. 6 to 8 seconds and then just disappeared. I immediately yelled to my husband that I had just seen something that looked like a falling star except that it was green and big. I said it was something strange, something I'd never seen before. The size of it: If I held my hand out at arms length and put my thumb and forefinger together and looked through them, it would be the size of a 1" diameter marble.
