|Green Fireball sighting at the edge of Stanley Park in Vancouver BC Canada
I observed what looked like a green fireball shoot like a rocket horizontally parallel to the ground about 10 metres high off the ground. It lasted about 3 seconds and disappeared, there was no noise.
It was 8 pm - still broad daylight and I was coming out of Stanley Park - there were a few cars driving by but I'm not sure whether they noticed anything - it was very fast. It seemed like such a natural thing to see that I first thought it was a shooting star. My second thought was that shooting stars cannot be seen in daylight and not so low to the ground and certainly not neon green! I didn't think about it again till today when I found a note in Wikipedia about green fireballs
I'm still not certain what I saw can be described as a fireball but it was rocketing green neon ball of light that disappeared into nothing - quite low to the ground.
