While driving to my job on Friday morning, January 25, 2013, I witnessed what I thought was a shooting star or firework. There was no sound at all.

No sooner then my mind could make any sense of this, a huge greenish flash illuminated the wooded area around me. I looked up at what appeared to be a greenish ball of light that appeared to fall downward. Everything from a plane to a helicopter crashing ran through my mind, and I anticipated a boom after this bright flash of light, but there was no boom.

I sped onward toward my job which was right down the road. My instinct was to just get away from whatever this was. The event left me shaking.
