Location: St. George, UT
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 second
Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object
I was driving west when I observed a bright green light travelling at an incredible speed. It was heading down,right to left at a 45 degree angle until it went behind a mountain (Utah Hill). It caught my attention just before it went out of sight. I would have thought it was just a falling star but it was already light as the sun was coming up. Traffic was heavy, so I'd be surprised if nobody else saw it. I'm hoping to get other eye witness accounts.

This object was a bright green light that was travelling at an unearthly speed. Unfortunately, I was driving and it only caught my attention just before it went out of sight. It was heading downward, right to left at a 45 degree angle. The only characteristics that were different from a falling star were the color (bright green) and the time of day (sun up). Just last year, many citizens from St.George reported strange lights and contrails in the same location and direction of what I sighted today. Those turned out to be missiles that were being tested over a test range which is near that same location. I'm trying to seek a logical explanation for what I saw. I'm not sure who to contact.
