Reports Report 454fd (Event 454-2017)

Name Crystle L
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks This "fireball" was ridiculous. Literally started reading up on what it could have been after I saw it. I bartend, which is the only reason I was up to see it. Got home from work and there is a bright green ball of light streaking across the night sky. Going from south to north, from my point of view, about 5 miles from the Wisconsin border. A little more east of the midway point of the two states (Illinois and Wisconsin) where the border runs.
