Shape: Cigar
Duration:2-3 seconds
I saw a bright green, cigar shaped object streak across the sky and veer off course.

Was traveling east on highway 60 right outside of town. Something caught my eye to my left. I, at first, thought it could be a shooting star, but it was bright green and cigar-shaped.

It was going straight the seemed to veer off course. It was very unusual not shall of light like a star would be.


((ADDENDUM FROM WITNESS--TEXT OF ORIGINAL REPORT))

Saw a cigar shaped, bright green light streak across the sky and veer from a straight path.

Was traveling east on highway 60 right outside the city limits. I caught a glance of something I thought could be a shooting star but as I looked closer, it was bright green and cigar shaped not shall of light. It also seemed to veer off a straight course, not like a star. It also had a strong tail of the same color. It was very unusual.

((ADDENDUM #2))

It was close so it appeared bigger than a star or planet in the night sky but not as big as a full moon, I would say the size of a crescent moon would be my guess
