|Small green light in southern Minnesota sky.
A small green light moving west to east in the southern sky. The green light had a white trail 10 times the length of the greean ball of light.
It covered my complete field of view in 4 seconds nearly perfectly horizontal in its trajectory. Size was very dificult to determine. My best guess would be it was 10 miles south of Winnebago and at roughly 3,000 ft.
I have seen meteors and this was distinctly a green light about the size of a M&M in the sky. Given its small size if it had been a manned craft it would have been traveling at a speed I have never wittnessed. I have also seen fighter jets from 1 to 10 miles away and this was faster than any jet.
I have never seen something like this before and was startled enough to find somewhere to report it.
