Full Description & Details
Falling from sky I saw a pale green bright light in the distance falling slow and i thought it was a shooting star at first until i realized it was getting close to the ground. Then i pointed to it and the two people with me saw it and it fell slower than something that is falling from that height. It was long like a telephone pole but a little wider with a pale green light trailing about 25 feet from behind it. When it got around 100-200 feet from the ground the light went out. My dad and i have seen meteors before and they are round and the light is always white or red but not green like this and it fell way to slow to be a meteor because I had time to see it and tell the other people to look in that direction and they still had a chance to look and see it for a few seconds as well. It was not falling with one point down it was horizontally positioned but falling straight down.
Can sighting be explained as any conventional man-made or natural object?
No it fell from sky but not round so couldnt be a meteor or anything.
Views on UFOs, before and after sighting
Read and seen television shows but never believed or saw before. Now i believe it is possible because of speed, shape, and color of light.
