Blue-green ball of light seen over Chalfont, Pa

I was watching television at home around 2:15 in the morning and the curtains to my sliding glass back door were closed but theyíre very sheer so you can see right through them. My TV is right next to the door so both are within your view when youíre watching and I could clearly see the moon just above some trees out back through the curtains. The moon was low so part of it was blocked by the tops of the trees.

Then, I saw a bright blue-green ball of light above the moon traveling in an arc. I got up and moved the curtains to get an even clearer look and watched it. After about 20 seconds, it disappeared. It didnít go below the trees because it was still above the moon and the moon was at the tree tops. It just vanished.

The best way I can describe how it looked was that it looked like the end of a firework when all the balls of light are flying toward the ground and eventually going out. The only differences were that there was only one instead of multiple like a firework and there was no audible explosion beforehand. Keep in mind, it was 2:15 in the morning so an explosion from a firework or even from a flare would have been clearly audible. Also, it was much bigger than a firework remnant or flare and wasnít flying directly at the ground like either would. It was still flying in an arc, but more parallel to the ground then anything.
