|Large bright green ball with red tail crossed west to east in very high up in pre-dawn above residential area for 5-6 seconds.
Near the end of my pre-dawn walk, I saw high in the sky a bright green ball with a diminishing sparkly red tail move west to east and disappear behind silhouetted large trees. The sight was astonishing!
I quickly moved across the road to follow it, but I lost it. This happened just before sunup while the sky was not bright yet.
I have never seen this and at first tried to consider a plane, but the green ball was too large and planes do not have "red tails." The tail was not very long, but was definitely in a "pennant" configuration. Comet?
