Weird Things in the Sky?

Date: May 25, 2009
Time: 4:40 p.m.
Place: Provo, Utah
Location: 200 North and 900 East - Bus stop
Setup: Waiting for a bus home (at bus stop)

This is the strangest thing I've ever seen! It was a beautiful clear, sunny day in Provo, Utah. The air was clear, with very few clouds, and the temperature was probably in the upper 70's (not too bad). I was waiting at the bus stop on Memorial Day, before I realized that bus service was limited on the holiday. I glanced up at the mountains to the east.

Suddenly something caught my eye - movement. I saw a streak of bright lime green trailing behind something that streaked down behind the mountains, as if it were a meteor falling to the earth, but very large and bright green. The width of whatever it was I saw was about as wide as the moon would be if it were full and up high in the middle of the sky. The bright green that streaked behind whatever it was appeared almost like a green version of northern lights trailing behind some object shooting across the sky, disappearing almost as quickly as it appeared. It all came and went within a matter of a few seconds.

Wow! I sat there trying to figure out what I had seen, but everything I had previously had experience with or knew about evaded me. Only yesterday did I finally find something that described occurrences similar to mine - on Wikipedia:

I've never been one to believe in UFOs in the alien sense of the word, and I still don't! I think that what I saw must have been some natural phenomenon, and I'd like to find out what it was. Weird, huh?
