Duration:aprox. 8 seconds
looked like a really BIG .. long lasting.. blue/green shooting star. appeared from top of my windshield and vanished in the distance.

From the top of my windshield appeared a blue and green ball of fire/light. it "streaked" forward (in the direction i was driving) for about 8-9 seconds and disappeared. i DO know that there was a meteor shower a couple of weeks before this occurence, so i guess it may be possible that it was a meteor of some sort; i don't know. it just seemed like a really wierd meteor; if it actually was one at all. it didn't go very fast, it was night outside, so i'm guessing it was about as fast as a jet maybe. and it seemingly lasted quite a bit longer than any shooting star I'VE ever seen. in anycase, i thought it very unusual and worth reporting.
