Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 sec
Green fireball of double ball pattern (colon configuration : with one tail) observed.

Observed a double ball fireball descend from the sky in an arc pattern. There was one tail for both balls. They looked like a colon (:) falling from the sky. This lasted fairly long - at least 5 seconds or more (moving somewhat slow) and was not like any meteor. The fireballs appeared to have an orange/red color in them, but the tail was definitely green. Then it disappeared. No sound. No smoke. Did not appear to be an object, but some kind of energy release.
