|Fast moving large bright object seen over south central Connecticut at 1:35 AM on 3-28-02.
Please be sure that I am as serious as could be. I had just come home from work. I just stepped out of my car when I saw it just below and to the right of the moon. It was traveling very quickily, with no sound, in a westerly direction. My first impression was that this was a piece of space junk re-entering the atmosphere. However it was by far the largest object that I have ever seen of this type, meaning such as meteors. It appeared to be about one twentieth the size of the full moon and brighter. The leading edge seemed to be a greenish color. I had limited view of the object due to my house.
