Bright Neon Blue/Green Fireball flashed in the Brooklyn Sky on August 16, 2007

My friend and I went outside of my apartment building in Brooklyn to get a few things from the deli. After buying some juice and snacks, we walked across the street back to my building. As we were about to say goodbye and he was about to turn around and walk home, we saw a bright neon blue/green fireball like image in the sky that lasted for 2-3 seconds. It shot very fast and if it was orange or fire color, I'd say we witnessed a meteorite. But because it was neon bright blue/green, it kinda spooked me. Figured I'd write this and send it in. Upon checking online for a good place to document my sighting, I noticed that another person this month saw something very similar out in California. I drew a picture when I got back upstairs. It's too large to fit on my scanner but I could make a reduced copy on a color copier and then scan it to send in to you guys as a follow-up. Never saw a "UFO" before. And I'm not saying this was an alien sighting or anything like that. Just that I did see something. My friend saw it and so did like 10 or so other people that were hanging around their front stoops on the block. That's Brooklyn.
