A few years ago I was watching the sky and saw one of those large
bright green meteor cross the sky that end up as a green ball. I was
able to triangulate its rough position from a simultaneous observer's
report from about 140 miles away. It passed straight overhead for the
other observer, and a low angle for me, so it was pretty far away.
The thing was, I could definitely see "diameter" to the green ball,
and had it under observation long enough to know it wasn't just
after-image or glow. It was not a point source, it was a little
better than Jupiter, which just shows visible disk area for most
people. My calcs showed that for me to see that disk area, the ball
would have to have been at least over 275 meters or so in diameter,
probably more. Of course, the actual meteor was probably only the
size of a peanut.
The only explanation I can imagine is that it was glow from a
tremendously high voltage. It was perfectly round, not teardrop, so
it wasn't gasses associated directly with the meteor. It started out
very fast and brilliant (had to look away for a moment), then slowed
noticably and shed the sparks and tail it had initially, and became a
singular green spot without any tail at all as it sailed at a slower
rate across the sky. So spalling off all that outer stuff must have
stripped off a large amopunt of charge, leaving a core to make a glow
in the rarified gasses hundreds of meters across. This could also
explain why these 'greenies' as I call them, have been reported to
dramatically change direction sometimes. A mass of a few grams with a
few bazillion volts of charge on it could easily be moved around by
large patches of charged gasses in the upper atmosphere as it passes
them. The patch of gas working against the meteor by electrical force
may have tons of mass. The whole point being, there's one way to make
huge charges on an object.
