Location: Lubbock, TX
Shape: Sphere
Duration:3.8 seconds
Green spherical object with no trails of light behind it suggesting that it could have been a shooting star.

The object that was sighted was neon green in color, spherical, and traveled in a straight line at an angle to the ground. The object was roughly the size of a BB when held at arms length relative to the surrounding environment. It behaved like a shooting star but the shape stayed too consistent and there were no trails of light behind it suggesting that it could be some kind of "shooting star".

The light was sharp neon green in color and we were traveling northbound on Slide road toward the mall right before the intersection for loop 289 when we sighted the object. I could not have confused this with any other color and the green light was even glowing through street lights and I could clearly distinguish between the white street lamp and the green object.
