A green ball of light.

I went out onto my balcony for a cigarette and that's when I saw it.

I was leaned up against the banister out on the balcony and started smoking my cigarette.I also had a glass of water in my left hand. As I'm smoking,I'm looking out into the open straight ahead and all I see is a mall parking lot and my apartment building parking lot.

As I went for a sip of water,my head slightly tilted back and my eyes were pointed sort of at the sky. Right then a green ball of light eminated in front of my eyes. There was a slight cloud coverage and I could recognize a light green haze around it. So I kept looking on and it started to move to my left and there was no sound and it moved in such a straight line. It started to accelerate and it disappeared leaving a green trace of light and I have seen lots of planes and this was definately not a regular plane.

When it moved to my left it moved horizantly and not on an angle. I have seen shooting stars and they go by really quickly and they look white and they don't go by horizantly or slow enough that I could describe what it looked like.

This has been my first sighting ever and it was really exciting and chilling.
