Reports Report 2580g (Event 2580-2017)

Name Stephanie F
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks I was driving and in the corner of my eye to the right I saw this green flame that looked like it was falling straight down. It was hard to gauge the size because it was night, but it was large enough that I knew it couldn't have been a firework or anything along those lines (and there was not any fireworks going off anywhere near the area). Then down the expressway I saw a cop with their lights on speeding in that direction so I don't know if they saw it or what (it's a pretty quiet area of Greece, NY). I wish I turned around to see if it landed on the ground but I just kept thinking holy crap!
