    we were on hiway 250 about 11 miles south of Rushville Ne when we both saw a bright green light streaking through the sky. it looked to be going south to north. It then exploded and dissapeared.

    I was heading to fort collins from cheyenne wy to grab dinner and I saw these..

    I think I caught them much earlyer as one was almost stationary, not shooting through the sky like most of the reports.. it was either much further away, or not a meteor. It moved more like a comet.

    I saw another one days after

    And I saw one yesterday.

    And I assure you they were all the same

    I found an awesome meteorite in Big Horn Wyoming in 2015 while looking for this meteorite.
