Location: York, ME
Shape: Fireball
Duration:10 seconds
Shooting star quickly decends before stopping and hovering briefly after turning green and traveling horizontally before disappearing

I was swinging on the York Middle School swings, I believe facing east. I was looking at the sky, the stars looking remarkably dim, when I saw what I percieved to be a shooting star flash across the sky, hover briefly, then flare a bright green color and traveled horizontally before disappearing.

My phone ironically lost battery moments before the sighting.
