Duration:3-4 seconds
Bright green light.

I was drivig home heading up the Steese Hwy. towards Fox. I was about 1/2 from the Chena Hot Springs exit when off to my left I saw an incredibly bright light falling. It looked just like a shooting star only much brighter and much closer and it was green. It looked as if it would hit the ground in the valley behind Curry's Corner. I had my 3 children in the car with me and they were just as amazed as I was. It looked white as it was falling then the closer it got to the ground the brighter green it seemed to get.

I believe it was debris that had entered our atmosphere.

The strange thing is that a couple of weeks ago less than 6 miles away a friend of mine reported the exact same sighting on her way to work. There were many witnesses in both incidences.

Any clues as to what is falling from the sky here? Satellite debris maybe?
