same as Aug. 25 - Quincy, CA

I wasn't going to mention it, until I read report from Quincy, CA to the east of Sacramento on same date & time. We had just left SMF Sacramento Airport and were on I-5 headed west toward the Sacramento River bridge, when I glanced to my right and saw a greenish flash of light, like a shooting star, going westward low in the air just westward of the airport. No one else in the car saw it, so I never mentioned seeing a greenish fireball.
