Location: Allentown, PA
Shape: Light
Duration:5 seconds
Saw a low-flying line of green light in the sky for a few seconds, that looked like a meteor or something.

Was driving South on 309 by the 78 junction next to Dorney park, and off to the right I saw a green line of light in the sky for just a few seconds.

My immediate reaction was, "oh, a shooting star," only to realize a milisecond later that shooting stars aren't green or that low.

I doubt it was a craft of any kind, but it was something.


((NUFORC Note: We believe that some meteors can give off green-colored light. It is a result of the copper content of the meteor. Copper ions give off green light. PD))
