Location: Wright-Patterson AFB, OH
Shape: Fireball
Duration:20 seconds
Green Fireball the size of a full moon at an approximate altitude of 1000 feet

Sometime in 1984 or 1983 I was driving north on Rt 444 in Fairborn, OH. I can't recall what month it was. I think it was a fall or winter month. I'm pretty sure it was 1984. The time was around 10Pm or 11Pm. Rt 444 drives along Wright-Patterson AFB and there were a lot of cars out at the time. I am sure that there were other witnesses. I am also sure that the control tower at Wright-Patt saw it. Anyway, I was driving north and suddenly I saw this brilliant green fireball heading north overhead. It was about the size of a full moon and it looked like it was on fire. It left a small trail of flame behind it. A lot of people saw it cause I remember a number of cars pulling off to the side of the road. I had never seen anything like it, but I assumed it was probably a meteor. Now, I'm not so sure that's what it was.
