Bright white/green light flying silently across horizonBright white/green light flying silently horizontally across horizon just over the tree line. My husband and I have seen this on several occassions (together & idiviually) since Sept. 1999. The first time we saw it was at about 9pm on a clear night in September. It was an extremely bright light racing toward the south. It did not have a trail nor did it make any noise. I don't if you would classify it as a fireball or a light. It was as bright as a fireball or perhaps like a meteor. It streaked across the sky in a matter of seconds. We never saw anything fly that fast. It actually seem to dissapear into thin air.We are both professionals and realized after mentioning it to couple of friends in passing coversation, that it was best to stop talking about it because they thought it a strange topic and in laymans terms didn't want them to think we were nuts. A few months later a friend had told us that while she & her husband were walking the dog, she too, had seen the same light. Her husband did not because he was not looking in the same direction. Since then we have viewed this same strange light on several occassions. Twice at dusk. On a clear evening and on a overcast evening and also late at night. It has been a few months since we saw had seen the last occurance and we forgot all about it until recently. Another friend of ours (a little skeptical) told us about a green light she viewed during the daylight hours. Unlike what we had seen, this light (fireball) appeared to change directions and then disappear. We were very interested in what she had said because now we personally know of two other people in the same town who saw this and think that others must have seen this too. It is ironic that to see such a event like this you would have to be looking at in the right place at the right time because it happens so fast! We thought that living amidst so many Government bases that perhaps they have experimental aircraft they were flying... but then again, why would they test it over such a highly populated state like ours. Who knows...! We are left wondering.((NUFORC Note: Date in January 2002 is approximate. We have arbitrarily assigned the date of January 07th, since other reports from the east coast were submitted from the east coast for that date for a sighting similar in description to what is submitted here.
