|Bright Green Oval shaped UFO spotted.
I was going outside to go look at Mars. I was looking towards the Northwest when I saw the object when It was a bright green light shaped like an oval, moving from left to right. the Object didn't emit any sound. I couldn't see it clearly because a big oak tree was blocking my view. It was moving at a moderate pace, and appeared to be at least 150 feet up in the air. I was standing about 300 feet. It was it the sky at about a 70 degree angle from the ground, and it was gaining altitude. Then suddenly I saw sparks emitting from the bright green object and it lost altitudes, and disappeared behind the hill/herizon. I heard dogs barking like crazy after I regain my composure, and could focus all of my senses. I have seen UFO's before, but I was 10 the first time, and 18 the second time. I am 25 years old. and this is my first report.
((FOLLOW-UP COMMUNICATION WITH WITNESS))
It really didn't go in a 90' degree angle I believe I said it was a 70 degree angle when I saw it. It climbed gradually from an 75 degree then to an 80 degree, then it gradually lost degrees, that is when I saw the sparks. Then it disappeared behind the hill. I thought it might have crashed but I didn't hear any noise. The next day, my neighbor and I took a walk in the woods behind her house, but we think it may have landed or went over the neighbors property. I also forgot to tell you about the size. I would say it was double the size of the north star.
