Sighting Reports 2009

Object Shoots Across Sky Leaving Bright Green & Blue Trail

Date: January 3, 2009
Time: 6 to 8 PM EST
Location: Vernon, New Jersey

Description: I was snowboarding at Mountain Creek in Vernon, New Jersey last week. I believe it was January fifth, probably around a week ago and it must have been between 6 and 8 PM. I was with two of my friends on the chair lift when we spotted what looked like a shooting star. It was moving at the speed of a shooting star. When it first entered the atmosphere it looked just like one. Then instead of burning out after a mere second or two it continued at the same speed in the same direction gaining big blue and green trails. The trails were actually very big, and very bright. This was nothing like we have ever seen before. After about 8 seconds hang-time it disappeared into the opposite horizon we had spotted it from.

Note: I believe that the witnesses saw a meteor. The green color could have been due to copper content. There is some doubt as to the date. In the date field of the report field the witness stated that the sighting was January 3, 2009. In the description above he says that it occurred on January 5. Another similar sighting occurred in Pitmann, New Jersey on January 3. (The time was later.)
