I stepped out my front door and was immediately attracted to some movement above me. Flying through the sky at a very slow rate of speed was what appeared to be a green stream of light that was moving in a manner that made it seem alive and not a craft. It was flying no more than 20-30 feet above me due east for approximately 30-40 seconds when a spark of light materialised at the head of the stream and seemed to reveal a vague ring shape with bright white flamelike sparks of light emanating from inside the outer portion of the ring towards the center and right before the sparks met in the middle the whole thing dissapeared. The object made no sound which was strange to me as it was flying so low. The movement of the object was fluid and slightly undulating which the only way I could make a rational human comparison when I told my wife was that it moved and had a vague physical resemblance to a jellyfish. I have never seen anything like it nor have I ever heard or read of anything like it but since it happened I have found similar sightings reported online.

This was not a firework, or any light abberation or distortion. It was vivid, close and highly visible with more than enough time for me to size it up and find a logical explanation. I would like to know if anyone else saw it that night. I have never seen a ufo and am a rational intelligent person who has never ruled out the possibility of life beyond this world but at the same time never convinced by the limited knowledge of reported sightings and lack of first hand evidence. What I saw changed that for me forever.
