Green Orb

Just off of 98th Street Exit (west on I-40), heading north off exit. We saw a bright white/yellowish light shoot down from the sky and begin to travel west. The light appeared to turn green upon horizontal (westward) movement. Orb traveled horizontally for approximately 7 or 8 seconds and then "disappeared" behind hills (volcanoes). Entire episode took place in approximately 10 seconds. Never seen anything like it.

Dear Mr. Davenport,

Yes, the object changed speed during the observation. It sped in from the sky (down and from the east)--looked white/yellowish and moved like a shooting star, then began moving horizontally at a much slower speed and turned green.

Object moved at a regular, even velocity in a westward direction until it disappeared about 7 seconds later. It was truly the strangest thing I have ever seen. My boyfriend was driving the car and I was passenger. I was in the middle of a sentence and just stopped speaking and pointed. My boyfriend noticed right around the time I did (and he was driving--that's how noticeable this object was).

As soon as the object disappeared, we both turned to each other and said, "Did you just see that?" During the observation, we were both so stunned by what we were seeing that neither of us could speak. It looked so out of place and unlike anything else either of us had ever seen. I wish I had seen more.

Please let me know if you know anyone I can speak with who is familiar with these objects, and with ufos in general. I have many questions and am very concerned that what I have seen is not of this planet. I want to know why it seems like the government is hiding information from the public on this issue.

Thanks very much for any assistance you can provide to me. I hope I have given you some information you can use. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any more questions or information to share.

Take care,
