Location: Appleton, WI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:25 seconds
While stepping outside to take out the trash, I saw a large yellow-green fireball traveling west to east about 30 degrees above the horizon. It looked almost like a firework with a glowing ball and a trailing stream that flickered like a flaming tail.

Since there was no noise that I could hear, I assumed that this was a large meteor. Shortly after I saw the green fireball moving west to east, I saw 4 more familiar looking meteors, which were very quick streaks of white light which diminished quickly, and they all moving from north to south. The green fireball, moved much slower, in a different direction, and was the same brightness all the while I observed it. I lost sight of it when it was obscured by my neighbor's house. I thought this object was unusual enough to report since I have never seen anything like it. Other than the above, I really couldn't give you any more info. I am A regular Art Bell listener so I was aware of your reporting center.
