Shape: Fireball
Duration:
My son saw a green fireball in the sky at 9:23 p.m. through the front room window. It was about a quarter of the size of the moon. Coming from the south heading east, over Columbia Valley (where we live) in B.C.

I had said to him earlier in the afternoon that tonight was supposed to be a good night for watching the Northern lights. He had just come into the front room to watch TV, after having a bath. He had just sat down in a chair (closer to the window than my chair). I thought he was watching the TV, when he said "Did you see that?" I said "What,,, on TV?" He said "No, outside" So we both got up and went out on the front porch and looked up. We didn't see anything, so he started telling me what he saw. I had heard a bit on Art Bell radio show but, just let him tell me. I asked size, colour and direction. He said the ball and the tail were green. It was clear sky, no clouds, fog down low across the valley and fields. We were inside with the TV on, so didn't hear anything.
