A bright green circular object was seen flying in the sky in Sparland, IL

A bright green circular object hovered in the sky. The size of the object was relatively about the size of the moon that night. It moved slowly in a horizontal direction for a few minutes and then without any sort of acceleration of speed it took off and disappeared leaving a small trail of light behind it. Three people saw the entire sighting, while 3 others claimed to see the last few moments of it.

The next morning a duel propeller helicopter flew overhead. This was not the same object seen previously the night before.
