Location: San Francisco, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration: 60 seconds
Characteristics: The object left a trail
Large bright green fireball moves slowly in the sky.

At the beach when a bright green fireball appeared. It was very large, perhaps the size of a silver dollar at the end of your outstretched arm. It seemed like it could have been as close as a few miles off, moving south to north. I could see the flames burning as if it was a small sun, and moving so slow that the long tail of smoke was rising up into the air. It never varied its height, just moving silently horizontal to the horizon, then just disappeared in an instant, the smoke still left behind.

I noticed some green fireballs in your other data log. Do you have any idea of what this could have been?

Thanks much, ((name deleted))
