Sighting Reports 2009

Woman Shocked by Bright Blue-Green Aerial Light While Driving on I-70

Green River is in East-Central Utah.
Green River is in East-Central Utah.

Date of Sighting: November 18, 2009
Time of Sighting: 12:15 AM CST
Location of Sighting: On I-70 Near Green River, Utah (See Map)

Description: I was traveling west on I-70 in Utah coming up on the exit for US-6 North. This is when a greenish blue light lite up the sky on the right side of my vehicle. I looked to the right trying to identify the source and I saw it. It was coming through the air in a southwest motion. It was about the size of a basketball. It was white in center and had that same greenish blue color around it, but much brighter than what the sky was. Also that same color was trailing behind it like a tapered tail. For a split second I thought this thing might actually collide with my vehicle then it was gone. This whole thing lasted about 6 or 7 seconds. There was a vehicle going east bound and I saw it hit the shoulder of the road and stop just as I was making the exit to go onto 6 North.

Note: This light obviously was very large if it had the apparent size of a basketball. However, much of the description characterizes a meteor. The green color could be due to the copper content of the meteor reacting with the atmosphere and the heat of friction.

Update: We have received other reports of "fireball" activity over Utah. Local news media outlets are reporting that the fireball was a meteor. Click here to read short article from the Deseret News.
