Shape: Teardrop
Duration:<1 minute
6:40 AM today in Cerritos, CA, bright glowing, blueish green ball (shaped like a fireball) spotted speeding downward from the sky.

This morning, approximately around 6:40 am, I was outside and noticed a reflection on my glass door of a greenish, blue and yellowish glowing ball (like a fireball) moving across the sky. I turned around to face it and it was moving fast, headed for earth.

I saw it for maybe 35 second (includes the time I first spotted it as a reflection), before homes and trees blocked my view.,

I actually stayed quiet and still, waiting for a loud crash or a jolt, which I did not hear or feel.

Note: I was not sure about which shape to select, but it was between the fireball and the teardrop. There was definitely a roundness to it, but had a tail like a fireball falling from the sky at great speed,

This ball was quite brightly glowing, considering the morning sky was fairly lit, and my glass door was dusty,.
