Full Description & Details: On April 14, 2010 at approximately 22:10, I was standing on the North end of our house facing south when we witnessed what appeared to be at first to be a shooting star. My second thought was an aircraft coming down on fire, but the speed was too fast for an aircraft.

Then I noticed that it was quite large. Much larger than any star I had ever seen. Not as large as the moon, but absolutely not a plane or helicopter. It had a greenish color to it with a dark area in the middle. It arced in the sky heading to the south east, and then appeared to be falling to the earth when it suddenly disappeared.

The entire encounter only lasted approximately 10-15 seconds.

Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object? Possibly either
