|Green fireball spotted between Toronto and Kingston Ontario Canada Dec. 20/2000 -- 8:38 PM EST.
On Dec. 20/2000 at 8:38 PM EST, I was driving north on HWY #38 -- which runs directly north of the eastern end of Lake Ontario. I looked to my left (West) and saw a bright green ball of light descending straight down. Gold/yellow sparks seemed to be coming from the object. I was visible for only a couple of seconds. As well, it was extremely bright. The evening was exceptionally clear with no moon. My best guess is that the object would have been about 50 miles from me. This would raise the possibility of other reports being files from teh Belleville area as well as perhaps Trenton and Oshawa. If my guess with respect to distance is off, perhaps there might be some reports from Toronto. I watch the sky a great deal and have not seen an object of this nature before. The color and path of descent are the two issues which have compelled me to file this report. Best regards, ((name deleted))
