|A green fireball streaked down through the sky at a steep angle and disappeared
I was driving north on Interstate 1-85 near exit 58. Maybe 1 quarter mile from the exit,I saw a green oval object, glowing as if on fire - move from high in the sky on a downwards diagonal path - then then disappear before reaching ground level. The object looked roughly oval, it was not round, but it did seem to have a firey glow around it. Granted it was a foggy night - but the green light was not sharp and defined - the glow may have been due to the mist/fog in the air.
I was nearing a commercial shopping area near the highway exit, and it looked as though the object would head right down into the shopping center area - but instead before it reached what would be ground level it disappeared in the fog.
There is no airport at this exit, and the path was steep - it descended on a 45 degree angle. That is, it did NOT move on an even path as an passing plan would, and it was too steep for any aircraft to descend.
