Glowing Green Light Seen Descending Rapidly in Night Sky
Date of Sighting: March 20, 2009
Time of Sighting: 2 AM EDT
Location of Sighting: Near Rainsville, Alabama
Description: We were driving at the time. We saw something big in the sky. It looked like a comet or something. It was coming down fast and at an angle. It was glowing green. This may not not the best description ever, but it had to hit somewhere. Most comets will burn out before they hit the atmosphere, but is was well in it by this time.
Note: The witness did not see a comet. I believe that a meteor with considerable copper content was observed. It is unknown if the meteor reached ground. (If it did, then it would be termed a meteorite.)Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
