Green Orb does vertical drop, speeds off into oblivion faster than any object I've ever seen.

As a Security officer, I drive the same dark roads on an almost nightly basis. I work in an environment with a lot of golden colored lights on the buildings covering the ground in that area; fairly non-reflective. At about 0123 hours on the 22nd of October 1008, I was driving North on a straight stretch of road. Clear as day, as if from nowhere, just over the refinery (where I work) a huge bright green orb dropped from the sky (I will not attempt to give a height in feet or miles, because I would more likely than not be WAY OFF!), the light seemed to come out from within the object, forming a perfect green circle. The ‘orb’ appeared, went into a straight vertical drop, hovered momentarily then shot North and slightly upward, faster than I have EVER seen ANYTHING move in my entire life.

I was at once stricken with awe, terror and anger that I was alone in my witness. I proceeded (all the while watching the sky) to call my boss to tell him what I’d seen, as well as waking my wonderful Boyfriend who tried to convince me it was anything but a UFO. I worked until 0900 hours and never saw it again, not that I’d seen it before in the near four years that I’ve lived here in the area, or the 25 years I’ve spent staring relentlessly at the stars.

When I tried to find out if there had been some sort of falling satellite or Military activity, I found nothing. If this report prompts anyone else with better resources and know-how to do more research on what it may have been I would love to be notified of whatever can be said, or even if it’s somehow confidently accepted to be alien aircraft.
