    This is so exciting. So my daughter is in the Seminole High School marching band in Pinellas County ounty,Florida. Saturday night was the marching band festival at her school. The show this year is The Sword in the Stone. The big moment in the show this year is when a kid in the back of the field on the 50 yard line pulls a glowing sword out of a stone. Right at this moment during the show people caught this green fireball on video right where the sword prop was. It looked like the meteor was heading right toward the prop. It was absolutely amazing. The video is posted on the Seminole High School Band Boosters facebook page. I will check and see if i can get permission to share it with you.

    We saw two that night. First was from Winter Garden FL. It was very large looking, this was at around 10:20pm. Then we were driving north on I75 after leaving Winter Garden and we saw another smaller or further away at 11:11pm.

    I saw the same Bright Green Light on Nov 27 (2018) night around 11:05 it just pop up in the sky for a second and and vanished. Also I noticed what looks like a smoke trail rite across the moon. I first though it was a military jet. This green light was nothing close to it the speed it traveled.
