Shape: Sphere
Duration:5 seconds
While driving down 54 at midnight I witnessed a low-flying, fast-moving spherical green light source.

While I was driving down Highway 54 at 12:25am on October 4, 2016, in Carrboro, NC, out of the corner of my left eye to the southwest of 54 A rather prominent & radiant spherical shape suddenly appeared in the night sky, hovering above at about the distance a helicopter would be.

This low-flying ball of light was bright green/turquoise and translucent; the light emitted seemed to glow and rotate within itself it also seemed to leave behind a fast fading light trail as well. It moved quickly and silently across the night sky and seemed to be descending. My windows were down and this Light-Object did not make any sounds, it faded out of view and the entire experience lasted only a handful of seconds.

I exited onto Jones Ferry Road and kept my eye on the sky, but did not notice any further activity. This object was unlike anything I had every previously seen. It did not seem to match the traditional description of any aircraft, or astronomical activity that I am traditionally familiar with or have seen.
