I saw a phosphorescent green orb shaped object about the size of Venus move at very rapid velocity over Plant City, Floida.

While walking westerly at 9:05 PM EDT on Saunders Street between Franklin and Burton Streets in Plant City Florida, I saw a phosphourescent green orb shaped object about the size of Venus move on a very straight and rapid trajectory from the southeast to northwest 15 degrees above the northeast horizon.

There was no sound, and the object appeared to have no tail.

Weather was clear and cool. Moon was in the western sky 45 degrees above horizon. Venus to its immediate north, Orion to its south.

Several high flying (25,000-40,000 feet high) commercial airliners before and after sighting, but not during.
