2nd Witness: Large bluegreen fireball fell acrosss the sky in Fairfield Connecticut

I was driving home from a late night poker game around 2am on 10/14/2006. I was driving east on I-84 through Waterbury, CT and in my left peripheral vision I noticed a moving light. I looked over and it appeared to be a shooting star. It was actually kind of startling, as it did not burn out and looked like it was coming at me. Then, it looked like it blew up, similar to the ending of a firework. It was very brilliant, but startling. I didn't think much of it and just settled on the fact that I was tired, had a couple drinks, and it was probably just a firework. I told some people and they thought I was crazy.

Recently I was looking up the UFO event at the Chicago airport. I found this site and started looking through some of the reports and noticed someone else had seen the fireball at the same time and date. Man I am glad someone else saw it, I thought was hallucinating.

As the other report said, it was VERY visually stunning but frightening at the same time. I really looked like it was coming at me. I hope to see another one again in my lifetime!
