This is FYI:
On the evening of December 24th, 2004 at 7 p.m., eastern standard time,
I walked out of my house to bring in my cat for the night. As I was
walking out heading southeast in the yard, I noticed in the direct
southeast what looked like at first sight to be a star falling 90 degrees down to the earth.

It fell in one to three seconds. It was antifreeze
green maybe blue green. I distinctly noticed and mentally noted at that
moment that there was no trail. I have seen large meteors and small
ones; they had trails. I always look up because I am an amateur
astronomer and photographer. This object was about the size of a -1
magnitude star; about the size of Venus on a good night, but it was blue
green. The other thing I noticed that was interesting was that the moon
was nearly full and the sky was cloudless. The night sky was very bright
because the moon was high in the sky. This object that I observed was
about 40 degrees high in the sky when I first noticed it. I am in southern
Ohio and it would put this object over Africa or maybe the Indian Ocean
or somewhere abouts in this region based on what I know about where the
moon is when it rises in the east. It can be directly over Africa and be
hanging in the lower eastern sky in Ohio. The moon was about 60 degrees high
to the east of this object in the east. I also remembered hearing on the
a.m. radio of an asteroid scheduled to hit the earth but later
discovered it was for the year 2029. I also heard something about this
asteroid being so large that if it hit the ocean, it would cause a
tsunami. So, I thought, if I hear of a tsunami on Christmas Day then it
was an asteroid perhaps. I obviously got the 2029 asteroid and tsunami
confused with what I thought was a prediction for an asteroid this week.
Anyway, this is what I saw and my thoughts at the time and it is my duty
to report this sighting.

Note, 1-9-05: I believe now that the false report (prediction) of an
asteroid hitting Earth was designed to make people think they saw an
asteroid fall when in fact it was a haarp related light. D.C.
