Round white greenish hue object. Northeast sky in Raynham MA 8:50 pm 1/23/09

I was sitting in my recliner watching TV when a bright light to my right caught my attention. I at first thought it was the moon. But it streaked almost straight downward at a very slight left to right angle. It was about a tenth of the size of a full moon. I told my wife it looked like the size of a dime. It was white with a slight green hue. I saw it for 1-2 seconds only. I heard nothing. I also do not remember seeing a tail.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke at length via telephone with individual, and we found him to be quite sober-minded, and credible. He has substantial technical background. We suspect that he may have been witness to a bright meteor. However, that is only a guess on our part, and given the other reports on the evening of this date, we are curious as to what he saw. PD))
