Location: Marquette, MI
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 minutes
Green Fireball-Upper Peninsula of Michigan

The object was lime-green perfectly spherical. It flickered like a fire.

The object followed the coastline from Little Presque Isle to Garlic Island (6 miles).

The object took roughly 3 minutes to cover this distance, so I estimate that it was travelling at 120mph. It was only 200 feet off the coast at an altitude of between 80-90ft.

It was no larger than a small car.

The object made no noise.
