It was a hugh bright bluish-greenish object traveling the tree line from east to west.

I live in NE Florida. My neighborhood is by the river, and is known for it's big, mature trees.

My lot faces the northeast, so when I went out back Wednesday night, 9/24/08, around 10:30 PM, I was looking up into the southwestern sky. The view is surrounded by tree tops. It was a clear night, and I could see stars.

The object came into my view as fast as it left. I was able to watch until it disappeared behind some trees, approximately 7 seconds. It looked like the pictures you see of meteors going across the sky, except this was at tree level, about the size of an average house in prospective to the trees, and was silent. It was bright bluish-greenish in the front and red in the back, traveling from east to west.

I waited there in astonishment, waiting to hear a crash. I was unraveled and ran inside to call our local TV station to report it.

The next day, as I was explaining it to my neighbor, his teenage son saw it too! He works around the corner from our home, and saw it from the window at his work place. He thought it was going down on the gas station across the street from him. He didn't hear it either.

We are just wandering if anything was reported or if anyone else seen it too.
