Location: La Grande, OR
Shape: Fireball
Duration:about 5 seconds
object looked like shooting star it turned green and glowing as it came closer to the ground increasing in size.

I seen what at first appeared to be a shooting star falling in the east vering to north slightly in a streight line. Usually they fade out pretty high up in the sky.

But this one kept coming closer and closer. The bright light I at first seen suddenly turned a bright green and increased in size to say about the size of a full moon at the highest point in the sky. It continued to fall until it was almost to the ground where I couldn't see it anymore it appeared to be about 18 feet from the ground. The height of a train car that was in front of me. From my line of vision it appeared to have gone down very close by.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness at length, and she sounded quite serious minded and credible. PD))
