Posted: 10/2/1999
Location: Chico, CA
Shape: Fireball
large solid spherical, bright emerald green with yellow fiery tail, coming across sky at a slow downward angle. No impact felt or heard. it was expected.

Husband and I were by window when large fiery emerald green type globe with fiery yellow tail started to descend gradually across sky. It appeared to be close and though it went behind trees, we expected to hear or feel impact or have a fire due to the dryness of our area and the fieryness of the object. Neither hearing or feeling an impact occurred.

When I phoned the local sheriffs dept. to tell them there may be a fire in the vicinity due to the object colliding in the outskirts, they referred me to call NUFORC.

I then proceeded to call that #. Later I sent report to both NUFORC and Mufon and contacted the local paper. All items mentioned were saved in my files and when I spoke to NUFORC recently it was suggested if I still had these items to resubmit my sighting on this net site and send in articles, which I have done on 9/27/99.

((NUFORC Note: We did speak via telephone with this witness, on the date indicated, and we consider her to be exceptionally reliable. NUFORC received many other reports from California on this date, including a report from an FAA ARTCC supervisor. PD))
