|Bright lime green orb that appeared, hovered, and then quickly shot downward leaving green trail.
It was on Saturday, December 11 2010 around 3:30 a.m. I was out behind my house in my garage working. I had to move a car from the back and park out front. After I parked the car I started to walk back to my shop. The walk is approximately 60 feet. It was a cool clear night, the stars were out with almost no clouds. As I walked back I saw how calm and clear it was. So I decided to stop and just admire how nice it was. There I stood for a good minute looking upward at the southern sky. Nothing obstructed my view, and I was looking in the same general direction the whole time. My eyes were about at a 45 degree angle with the horizon.
As I said I was looking at the sky for a good minute and I am sure nothing but stars were there. Then suddenly in the calm and clear sky it appeared. Yes it just appeared, as if someone had flicked a light switch. It was a very, very bright round sphere. It had a distinct edge to it. It was a lime green color with a green lighted haze or fog pulsating and radiating all around it. In relation to where I was standing I would have to say it was 400 feet forward. The height was at least 250 to 350 feet up now judging from its position above the house below it. To where I was the size was like a basket ball. Next to the stars it was much larger.
It stayed there for at least 7 to 10 seconds, not moving an inch from where it appeared. Not getting any dimmer, or changing in any way. When without any warning or change it quickly darted directly downward, leaving a straight bright lighted green haze trail behind it. Within 10 seconds the lighted trail diminished completely, and nothing was there. The whole incident happened quickly and only lasted at the most 20 seconds from start to finish.
