At about midnight, my friends and I started a campfire in my back yard. Shortly after we started the fire I noticed an anomalous object on the western horizon.
I would say that the object was definitely elongated, or shaped like a cigar. If you were sitting down and you held an aspirin capsule at armís length, it would be a good size reference for this object.
It was a lime green color and it was glowing with a high luminosity. It made no sound and it did not move.
It hovered in the same spot for nearly 3 and a half hours, and everyone saw it. The only reason that we lost sight of it was because it started raining and we had to go inside.
The object was miles and miles away, but I believe that it must have been massive considering the elongated shape was clearly visible and because of how bright it was glowing.
I live next to the city so I can hardly ever see stars or other celestial objects anyway and this was a cloudy night. There were no other stars out tonight.
I thought it could have been a comet but the object just was just too solid. There was no tail or streak and it was way too low on the horizon.
All I could do was stare at it. I couldnít say anything to the people around me for a moment. Someone finally asked me what I was looking at and I was able to use reference points to show them what I was seeing.
They saw it and nobody else could really come up with an explanation either. Iím left baffled by this and I really donít know what to think right now.
I know what I saw, and I know what I didnít see. What are we supposed to do about this?
