Location: Superior, WI
Shape: Light
Duration: second or two
Characteristics: The object left a trail
My brother in law told me about a sighting he saw in the area he described as "over lake superior" of a large comet tailed light decending over the lake. This could have been meteorological, however it was extremely large. He said it looked like something very large, "the size of a stadium" breaking up on entry into the atmosphere, although it only had one piece, not multiple pieces falling. This was on sunday the 8th he told me, times listed above are aproximate. He said he saw this at around dusk describing the 7th of March, the night prior.

The interesting things is that this incident was on the local evening news, with reports from as far north as, I think, Ely MN around 60 miles north of superior/duluth.
