A bright green sphere about the size of the moon shot across the sky in Tampa FL.Two friends and I were standing in a parking lot talking at around 21:30 in Tampa Florida. We were standing in roughly the shape of a triangle. One of my friends, whose shoulders were almost parallel to the object’s path, got a really puzzled look on his face and pointed toward the sky. I turned, my shoulders about perpendicular to the path, to see a very bright, light green object about the size of the moon traveling quickly from roughly south to north. My second friend turned all the way around and saw the bright light travelling quickly behind the clouds.The object was definitely circular, possibly spherical. It had a tail about twice the length of the object that gradually came to a point. It was only visible for a second or two due to clouds and trees but I was able to see it cover about 40 to 50 degrees of sky (the angle created by pointing where I first saw it to where it went behind the clouds). It looked very much like the green ball a Roman candle shoots but without any smoke. There was no noise except that of the cars on the street and the wind blowing through the trees.I’m not sure what it was. I grew up by an airport and have seen all different types of planes come in all types of whether at all types of angles and it was definitely not a plane. I read that green meteorites sometimes occur but if it was, it was either big enough that I’ll be hearing about it on the news tomorrow or close enough that we would have an impact noise at least. We were standing on church property, which is quite large, so short range fireworks are out of the question. There is little to no likelihood that it was a big fire work due to the lack of noise and it was the only time we saw anything significant in the sky.
