|Green Fireball heading NNE accoss 56 1000 ft above county A.
We were heading in a car east on hwy 56 from Viola to Richland Center when at 6:02pm we saw what first appered to be a missile or large firework. It headed from our right, from abut 3000 ft (above ground), toward our left about 1000 ft ag, passing about 1500 ft in front of us (very close!!). It had aprox. 600 ft tail of spark and what seemed to be fire. The point had a bright cap of white sparks light an arc wielder, this was followed by a hallow of emerald green fire about 40 ft long and 2 ft wide. The object seemed to pulse in velosity as it slowed down slightly as it pasted in front of us. We could not hear anything because of the car and it vanished behind the hill before we could see if it hit the ground. We turned left on hwy A and looked for about a mile for a fire but found nothing. We believe that if it hit it would have been just south of West Lima.
