Location: Big Cane (Plaucheville area), LA
Shape: Light
Duration:6 SECONDS
A bright light traveling east to west followed by a green waving light, followed by a smaller white light. The objects were close together and faded after about 6 seconds.

While myself and 3 friends where hunting for racoons one night between the towns of Big Cane and Plaucheville LA. we saw a series of lights. They traveled from the east to the west and looked to be very low. The first light was about as bright as the landing lights on a commercial plane. The second light followed close behind and was green in color and waving up and down like it was being pulled by the first. It left as short green stream behind it. The third light was simply a white light about half as bright as the first and following the green light. They decended at about a 20 degree angle and faded after about 6 seconds. I heard a swoosh sound after they passed in front. This may have been the wind. The flight path looked like a small plane decending for a landing if one was standing at the end of a runway and about 50 yards to either side of it. I was facing north at the time so I would have been to the south of the lights. I would like to know what these were. Do meteorites leave green trails? I did not hear an impact, and the area was woods surrounded by corn fields. It may have been flares. but the decent angle was wrong. I have seen parachute flares, and this did not look like them.
