Location: Ocean City, MD
Shape: Fireball
Duration:30 seconds
Object of green, active cold fire traveling at very high speed low above the ground in absolute silence.

It was a green sphere of cold fire with brighter light in the middle and greener on outside proportionally. We were on the beach in very early morning sitting on life guard chair with clouds after the rain. I've noticed some kind of light in the skies coming from the ocean behind the clouds, as it came closer it appeared under the clouds at the height of about 1 km.

Size of it must of been enormous (if u took a quarter and distanced it from yourself between your fingers-that would approximately describe the size) it moved at the speed of about 5000-10000 km/h with absolute silence over our heads. It took about 15 seconds to cover the distance from horizon to zenith. Right after it disappeared in clouds on the side of the continent it started to dawn, as if it was traveling in the last wave of darkness. We were astonished because it wasn't any type of aircraft known to this day. Fire was active, but appeared to be cold, as if you looked at the sparklers throu! gh heavy green mist, but there was no mist and object appeared to be between and under the clouds.
