Duration:30 minutes
3 objects within 30 minutes

I was driving northbound on U.S. 33 when I saw a green streak of light going from the south to the north. I stopped to get some gasoline, and when I proceeded in the same direction about 15 minutes later, I saw two more green streaks of light, one right behind the other, in about the same position in the sky, going in the same direction. I stopped at a traffic light when a car pulled up next to me. He got my attention, signaled me to roll down my window, and asked "Did you just see 2 green streaks in the sky...or am I losing it?" I told him I saw the same thing, he said "OK", and then turned. It was a clear sky, and these objects were very high in the sky, very far north of Columbus...I'd say at least over Lake Erie/Sandusky Ohio area...but it's too hard to determine where they entered the atmosphere exactly.
