Location: Novi, MI
Shape: Light
Duration:3 seconds
Bright green object moving north, north-west observed or suburban Detroit Michigan.

Observed a green light, about thumb-nail sized with arm stretched, moving north-northwest at a very high rate of speed. Changed as it went to smaller and yellow, then smaller yet and white. Did not observe any tail -- just the light. Interestingly, I heard a very loud sound, much like a jet aircraft reving up it's engines, about 5 seconds before this. I did not see the jet, which is why I went outside to look in the first place. No other jets were heard before or after. Am located about 20 miles north, north-west of Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Conditions were apparently clear, but city lights prevented observing how clear it was -- stars not visible. I suspect this was a meteor but figured I'd report it anyway.
