My Story starts on A friday Night i was spending Some time in a rural farm with my grandmother and aunt. Visiting this part of the country it was nice very dense vegetation and lots of wildlife. i recall it in my mind like if it just happened. We where sitting aroung a fire out back eating and enjoying the time when our guest asked if we wanted to stay for the weekend he said there were going to be a festival in town and i told him i couldn't i was to take my plane back to N.Y. that sunday. It couldn't have been no more than 5 seconds when i heared a boom i thought to my self well the fireworks are starting early for the festival, was i wrong as we look to our left in front of the volcano in the foregroung there it was it looked just like a football it's color was silver like the mercury and all around it was a GREEN Flourecent glow as it decended it was leaving a trail of green smoke thin as a razor line and the field all around us lite in a erie green light for about 6 seconds not one sound was heared it couldn't have been no more than two blocks away from us it fell across the road into the dense wooded farm no one brave soul gather up strength to go looking for it my grandmother and aunt praying in fear beg me not to go so i stood. i can tell you that i did have a video camera but i had it in the house it was late it was dark there was no need forr it but in times like that it would have been increable. after time i came to beleive that the boom that we heared was the object breaking though the sound barrier. it been some time now but i remmenber it well if the farm were it fell didn't have dense woods and spiky tree truncks i might have had the courage to look for myself. now when i go on vacation i always carry a camera in hand.
