Date of Sighting: November 8, 2009
Time of Sighting: 1:30 AM PST
Location of Sighting: North Richland, Washington

Description: The weather was somewhat unpredictable. The wind was swirling around, with one half of the sky dark with clouds and the other clear. As I was waiting for the dog, I observed an airplane fly West directly overhead to the local airport at roughly 1,000 feet altitude. I was looking East. One minute past that I saw what can be described as a bright green, round, intense light. I was able to focus my full attention on the object. The object was in clear sky and appeared out of the dark in one stationary position. The light's trajectory was straight from South to North/NorthWest. The light started at roughly the same altitude as the airplane a minute before and about 1/4 mile North of the airplane. There was no curvature to the trajectory as a flare shot would explain. The duration was about 2 seconds until the UFO was out of sight. The speed of the object was faster than that of an airplane or helicopter. It seems that the UFO could have descended from its starting altitude. There was no variation in color or intensity of the light as it moved across the skyline.

Note: This sighting sounds like a meteor with significant copper content. Sometimes these meteors are referred to as "green fireballs."
