Description: Hi, about four evenings ago while sitting on the tailgate of my truck with a friend in his driveway in north Oxnard at about 10:30 PM we witnessed a bright green ball or mass of flame or energy speeding almost directly toward the planet. It lasted up to two seconds, but the sky was very dark and we were both facing south. I, like many others, happen to be a cosmic enthusiast and tend to stargaze by force of habit. I just read a post on Instagram (I believe) of a gentleman who just today witnessed what he described as a red fireball heading earthward from an Oxnard vantage point as well! My father has had two separate freaky fireball experiences himself as he worked graveyard shift at the Port Hueneme waste water treatment plant years ago. I have come across tidbits of lore here and there regarding many UFO and unexplained light phenomena as well as history regarding our area of the world including the surrounding ocean and islands as well. Nothing concrete, but I am interested in theories as much as I am in data and evidence. You probably know as well as I that even truth can be debunked and stories have a way of making us want to believe. Let me know if you are interested. Well, thanks for reading and keep your eyes on the sky!

    Greetings again Mr. Puckett, and a big thanks to this person who reported the sighting of a “green fireball” over or around Oxnard, California. The witness said that this object was quite bright, fast and lasted some seconds. I’d never say that I’m an astronomy buff or anyways near that, but I do look at our share of the heavens and have seen more than several meteors and such, but I have never chanced to view an energetic, flaming, fast moving GREEN fireball or meteor, and I have been looking for at least a half century! I think that there could be some meteors that have a high copper content or some substance that incandesces as green when it enters our atmosphere. But as I said they must be kind of rare.

    In or around 1968, I and at least three other people witnessed a HUGE, solid looking Kelly green sphere that came within five hundred feet of us at around ten thirty at night when I lived in the Oakland-San Francisco bay area. All I’ll say is that it wasn’t a meteor, and the event lasted around a minute or so. I don’t know if what the Oxnard witness saw was something like our sighting, but all that I know is that it was ever so Kelly green! Thanks for the great report!

      Joel: Thanks for your comments. Yes, some meteors show up as green fireballs. As you mentioned in your comments these meteors have a high copper content and when they oxidize as the meteor(s) heat up, a green color results.
