Location: Perry, IA
Shape: Flash
Duration: very short
Very fast moving light(green), south of Perry, IA

We were south of Perry, Iowa, traveling north to the city of Perry, when out of nowhere there was a flash of green (like the color of a stoplight) in the sky.

It went down towards the earth very, very, very quickly and then just disappeared.

My daughter and I were the ones that noticed it. I saw it full on, she caught a glimpse out of the corner of her eye.

The sky was dark with no noticeable stars.

I was totally freaked out as I have never ever seen anything like this in my 40 years.
