Summary : Object flashed overhead, bright blue/green

We were watching the fireworks in a boat on East Fork Lake just outside of Olney, IL. A unidentified object went overhead. It was blue/green and looked very close to be from outer space but too far up to be fireworks. It was in sight about 2 seconds and then disappeared on the other side of the trees along the lake.
