Location: Queen Creek, AZ
Shape: Oval
Duration:3-4 sec
oval object, fast moving with a light green tail. also radiating a white halo, came from the eastern sky and flew westward

New years night, my son,my sons father,his brother, his brothers friend and I were all outside lighting off small firecrackers. Then out of the east came a large ball of light. It had a long tail on it and was moving very fast in a straight line. It was about the size of my thumb nail and had a width of my thumb and pointer finger span.

The tail was a deep turqouise closest to the oval and faded as it went down. It also seemed to be radiating a halo around the entire object.

It lasted a total of 3-4 seconds and was moving faster than I could take a picture, I had my camera by my side too and wish I could have captured it. It was like nothing I seen before and I've seen my share of metors and metor showers. The direction and speed also ruled out the possibility of it being a firework.
