Location: WEST SUFFIELD, CT
Shape: Fireball
Duration:5 seconds
LAYING IN BED LOOKING OUT WINDOW AND SAW A BRIGHT FLASH TRAILING FROM NORTHWEST TO SOUTHEAST. IT APPEARED GREENISH IN COLOR TO ME, I HAVE SEEN NUMEROUS SHOOTING STARS AND THIS WAS A DIFFERENT COLOR THAN I HAVE EVER SEEN. ALSO SHOOTING STARS THAT I'VE SEEN HAVE ALWAYS APPEARED TO BE HIGH IN THE SKY, THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME THAT IVE SEEN ANYTHING THAT I THOUGHT COULD'VE ACTUALLY LANDED OR BURNED UP CLOSE TO GROUND, IT REALLY SEEMED TO GO INTO THE TREE TOPS. I WONDER IF IT WAS SOME SORT OF METEORITE THAT MADE IT TO THE GROUND, BUT SEEING ON HERE THAT OTHERS APPARENTLY SAW THE SIMILAR OCCURENCE FROM ALL OVER THE STATE.
