Not really a believer in UFOs but here's what happened:

I'm in river north (Chicago) watching TV in my apartment. I see a bright green ball of light through the window facing North. It was moving similar to how I would describe a falling star, almost a perfect 45 degree angle - downward. I saw it for about 3-4 seconds and then it disappeared in the on the horizon (buildings/Lake Michigan, depending on the depth).

I've subsequently watched scores of airplains fly by and none are anything like the green ball I saw. Did anyone else see this?
