Duration: 1 minute
A green fireball with a long "tail" moving rapidly and turning the landscape green

My 34-year-old brother, and Air Force vet, was driving home at 3:30AM from work, North on US 131, when all around the area appeared to turn green. He saw a green glowing object like a fireball with a long "tail" moving rapidly west to east across the sky. In less than a minute it disappeared behind a small cloud but never reappeared. Please see the report for 11/2 also. He said it was like a comet, but too bright and too low to the ground. There was no sound.
