Location: Pass Christian, MS
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
WE SAW A GREEN FIREBALL PASS OVER OUR HOUSE. IT CAME FROM THE WEST AND HEADED EASTWARD IT APPEARED TO FLOAT ACROSS THE SKY.

THE NEXT NIGHT, WHILE RIDING HORSES TOWARD THE RIVER, WE SAW THE SAME FIREBALL ABOVE THE TREE LINE IN THE SKY MOVING EAST TO WEST.


((NUFORC Note: Most green fireballs, we suspect, are meteors, i.e. rocks coming in at high velocity from space, containing copper, which incandesces green. However, if the witness's estimate of the duration is anywhere close to being accurate, the object, almost certainly, was not a meteor. A one-minute sighting is too long for the overwhelming majority of meteors, and probably all of them. PD))
