Shape: Light
Duration:approx. 20-25 sec
Silent green light traveling at an unbelievable speed.

At approximately 2200 hrs., Myself and two other's were outside to see if the reported meteor shower had begun. While looking off into the southern horizon, I noticed a green light. The light first started as a white light and slowly changed to a light green color. There were no "Flashing" lights or red lights, as associated with aircraft. Also the light stayed on a straight path, and was seen for miles. The light also was moving at a speed which seemed out of the norm for local aircraft i.e. jet fighters. There was no sound with the object which made me think it might have been an "early meteor", but as the object continued into the distance, I noticed there was no dust trail as seen with meteor's. Also the object did not appear to be "Burning" or a "Fireball". The light continued into the distance until it became to small to see.
