Description (In Witness's Own Words):
  We saw a bright green ball. We thought it was a meteor at first, but it was too "artificial looking". It went from east to west from one horizon to the other and downward at a slight degree in about 1 and a half seconds and disappeared. That's the last we saw of it. May not sound very interesting but it was quite an experience.

Investigator's Notes: The witnesses at first thought that they sighted a meteor.  I believe that they saw a meteor composed of copper (causes the green glow).  Also given the fact that the fireball streaked and was descending supports the meteor "hypothesis."
