Green Fireball Streaks Over New Hampshire

By Guillermo Alarcon

On Sunday, January 10, 1999, at 7:05 p.m., "Bill Slatton was
driving home when he saw what looked to be a green fireball
streak across the night sky" in Pittsfield, New Hampshire

Pittsfield (population 1,717) is on Route 28 about 37 miles (59
kilometers) northeast of Manchester, New Hampshire's largest

"'My God, this thing is as clear as day,' he remembers thinking
to himself. 'It was huge. It was right along side of us.'"

"His fiance, Kathy Bickford, saw it, too. Police departments in
Bow (population 600) and Northfield reported sightings, with
callers describing 'a green flash' in the sky."

"Slatton said he and his fiancee saw the fireball for a few
seconds as they drove south on Route 20 in Pittsfield...He said
it was like the fireball that crashes into the Earth in a recent
Dunkin Donuts commercial."

"'It was descending almost like a plane descending. It's hard to
describe,' Slatton said."

"The object was about the size of a nickel or quarter in the
sky, and perhaps a few thousand feet away and a few thousand
feet up, although it was hard to tell, Slatton said."

"It was to the left of them as they drove south, perhaps landing
or crashing in Pittsfield, Epsom or Chichester, said Slatton, a
property maintenance contractor from Chichester," a town located
six miles (9 kilometers) southwest of Pittsfield.
