Shape: Fireball
Duration:seconds
I observed a fireball with long tail that what I would normally consider to be a shooting star, except for color(distinctly green),size,and it was below the cloud cover. It moved in a straight decending line in the Southeast sky at about 45 degrees from the horizon at a very rapid speed.
