Location: Powhatan, VA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 sec
The object swooped down on my front pasture and proceeded to travel horizontally thru the air at a very quick speed for about 5-8 seconds and then disappeared. It was a glowing green in color and seemed circular. Size proportionate to a dorm refrigerator.

I operate a small business in Powhatan VA, a rural county west of Richmond. Thursday night, March 9,2000, at approximately 7pm I was on the front porch with my husband. It was dark. We were listening to music and I was just looking out towards our horse field when I saw a glowing green object swoop down onto the pasture and proceed to move horizontally but in a circular fashion to the north going up the field. It irradiated a green color and lasted about 5-8 seconds and just disappeared. Mu husband was not looking that way and saw nothing. It seemed about almost as high as our 2-story house so it was fairly low to the ground. I ruled out a child's toy or anything else and for lack of a better word, call it a ufo. I have no idea what it was.
