Reports Report 5308as (Event 5308-2016)

Name Andy G
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I've seen "shooting stars" in the past and this was different. It seemed MUCH closer, much lower in the sky, and the color was very unique. The green "tint" was unmistakable. Clear evening, after sunset, but the sky was not yet totally dark yet. At first, I thought it was a firework, but the trajectory/angle was not right for a firework and I stayed for a few minutes to see if anything else filled the sky and nothing else showed up.
