Further Description of Sighting: I observed a brilliant green object emitting light. It changed intensity from bright to less bright approx 3 times as it was heading in a straight path south to north. This lasted approx. 4 seconds and then it went pitch black. The object had what looked like a green cloud around it. My best estimate was that it was traveling approx 600 to 700 mph.

I have spent half of my life dealing with aviation. I have seen thousands of aircraft in flight and certainly over 100 meteorites. This was neither. Too slow to be a meteor and definitely not navigational or strobe lights from a helicopter or airplane. It was maintaining a constant altitude and straight path. There was no sound. The green light was different than anything I had ever seen.
