I was riding home from Richmond travelling towards Cumberland when I noticed the object. My car had reached a clearing, and I wasn't driving (my mother was) so I was watching out the window. As we drove by the clearing, I noticed what I thought to be a meteor falling from the sky. It fell for a few seconds, but at a rate much steeper than most meteors I had observed before (it was close to perpendicular with the ground). I also noticed a greenish hue. While small, it was much slower and larger than any shooting star I had seen. After falling for a few seconds, the object performed a move that appeared to be a combination of a loop and a roll. It then seemed to disappear entirely. As it "disappeared" I completely lost sight of it due to more trees. By then, there was no way to see if it was still in the area or not. I immediately thought of the two options besides a UFO that the object might have been. First, a meteor, which is entirely possible, but like no meteor I've seen. Second, some sort of bug, but since it was sub-freezing that night, I found that hard to believe. My personal opinion in the matter is that it was a meteor burning out in the atmosphere, with something causing the greenish hue, and my own poor eyesight (I'm a touch near-sighted and was tired that night) accounting for the erratic behavior of said-same object.
