Posted: 11/19/1998
Location: Chandler, AZ
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 seconds
Brief what appeared to be a shooting star, Bright green in color, and very close, and very brief.

While standing on the patio of place of employment here in Chandler, several of us where there in a smoking area. While speaking to an individual there, I watched him light up and the surrounding area with a bright green light. very similiar to that of the glow of fireworks or a flare overhead.

I turned quickly to see what looked like a large bright green "shooting star" quickly extinguish. Behind it was a streak of what looked like smoke approx. a hands length if you held out your arm all the way above you and looked at your hand.

Everyone out there stopped their conversations, and all commented on how close, and bright that "shooting star" was. We had all seen shooting stars before, however; I can not ever in my life ever seeing one so bright, close, let alone green.

I wished to send you this information. I have heard of these "green fireballs" lately, and I really do not know if it was "UFO", or just another falling piece of the heavens. Maybe someone else out there say it too??
