Green falling object from the sky over Richmond Ky 2010

A friend and I were standing on my back porch in Richmond Ky on a clear cold night in October. The actual date I have now forgotten. We live on the route of a nearby airport and I see and know what planes flying over looks like and we also live very close to an army depot which reported NO activities this particular evening.

We were standing facing the open sky and I saw a glowing green flash hurdle to the ground descending from South to North... It looked as though it hit the ground less than a visible mile from my house. (Though we didn't witness ground impact). The green glowing ball had a tail of sparks trailing behind it. I have no idea the size of the object, but it was way bigger than a falling star and traveled slower than one time. By the time I saw it, I had enough time to tell my friend to look too and we both witnessed it fall. We stood outside long after, nervous of what might happen next and trying to explain what we saw. Suddenly between 5 and 10 white lights appeared in the sky. We at first thought them to be airplanes (comparably to the size an airplane light leaves in the sky) However, these lights were doing figure 8's in the sky and would continuously travel towards and away from one another in a star like pattern. This lasted for at least 20 minutes, and we had no video c! amera to record it.

I called everyone I knew in the area, who also went outside and saw the event of the white lights. About 15 people witnessed it during those 20 minutes. I posted that I had seen a UFO of some kind in the area on facebook and got a response from two different people who were traveling a nearby highway who saw the green light also hurdle to the ground. Both described the sighting exactly how I saw it without my going into detail first. No one ever mentioned the happening again. I checked the newspaper the next day to see if anything had been said or reported or if their was an explanation and we couldn't find anything.
