The object was green with bright contrail, it moved at incredible rate of speed north to south at aproximateley a 45 degree angle.

First of all I'm not crazy,

This morning 10-22-08 I was driving east bount on state rte 7 in OH at about 5:30am. All Of a sudden I saw a bright almost neon green round shaped object that seemed to be falling from space at an incredible rate of speed. Behind it was a contrail that was white. It reminded me of the footage when the space shuttle broke up and and fell to earth except it was one solid object. I have never seen anything remoteley like it before. The object was moving from what looked like north to south at approximateley a 45 degree angle. I'd like to think it was a meteor, but the green color has me second guessing. I don't know maybe meteor's can be green

((NUFORC Note: Similar sighting in Washington State, at about the same time. May be explained by the Orionid Meteor shower, which is taking place, currently. PD))
