Sighting Report

Reported: 9/25/2003 9:41:22 PM 21:41
Posted: 9/28/2003
Location: Pensacola, FL
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10-15 seconds
A bright Green, almost flourescent in color decending down from the sky at a constant speed to only vanish not vaporate.

It was around 8:45 pm when I went outside to take the garbage out when a bright green light from the sky caught my eye. I looked up and saw a bright green, almost flourescent in color, fireball descending down from the sky and knew from the size of it it was to large to be a falling star. It lasted for 10 to 15 seconds before it vanished, not vaporized or breaking apart but just vanished. The more I sit here and think of the occurence the more I realize that it was not going at an incredible speed such as a falling star shooting into the atmoshphere, but more of a constant speed, then accelerated for 1 or 2 seconds then to only disapear. . The fire from the rear of it looked as if fire does on the back of a jet thrusting forward or faster, this is the only way I can think of to describe it. Also if it helps I was off of Gulf Beach Hwy near Perdido Key and it looked as if it were descending down towards the intercoastal waterway. It was the size of possibly 2 softballs put together. I plan to try to draw an illustration of the object and send it in if I am able to reproduce the same image on paper. I can only hope that my description helps in any way and to wish that I knew what it was that I saw. I know it is an experience that I will never forget. Be it a meteorite or an unidentified flying object, I truly believe that we are not alone nor have we ever been.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witness, and she sounded to us to be quite credible, and to be a good observer. No other reports from this area of the U. S.. PD))

((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION WITH WITNESS))

I wanted to let you know that I have found 3 other witnesses from that night, but they said they would feel crazy calling a ufo hotline. And then a few nights ago my neighbors called me and said they were watching the green fireballs in the sky and they were so excited to see them. It was 2 from my understanding. I was going into surgery the next morning and have not talked to them since but I am sure they would call, I am going to call them and give them the hotline number and her husband was in the military here in Pensacola so he would know more about the latitude and longitude than I would. Thank you for the response hope all is well.

Sincerely, ((name deleted))
