Location: Tacoma, WA
Shape: Circle
Duration:one half second
observed a circular shaped bright, almost floresent, light green, with some white colored light shoot across part of sky.

Location: 7100 block of east "L" street, tacoma, wa. Looking south south west. Observed a very small, light green (almost floresent)in color, with some white spots, circular shaped light, shoot across a small portion of sky, disappearing over the horizon. When first observed, it appeared to be about 15 degrees above the horizon, almost straight south (slightly west) of my location. Size: Extending my arm straight out in front of me, fingers pointed upward, it appeared to be about half the size of my small fingernail. The light appeared to be an object only in that it appeared to have a clearly defined border (inotherwords, it was not hazy at the edges). It appeared to be moving from northeast to southeast in direction, traveling in a straight line, dissappearing from my sight due to rooftops at about 10 degrees above horizon. It also appeared to be loosing altitude. But this appearence may be due to its speed and direction of travel, in relation to my stationary location. Extending my arm out in front of me, while holding a ruler, it traveled 4 to 5 inches while dropping about 2 and a half inches. The entire event lasted only about a half of a second.
