Experience Level3/5
RemarksI was completely surprised and in awe of this sighting. I did not know what it was---at first thought must be a plane. Then, no, too big a green light, red fire-like tail not a plane. Definitely bright green with red tail that disappeared after passing overhead. Horizon, trees blocked any further view. Direction was west to east. No noise. Pre-dawn daily walk through quiet neighborhood.
