Location: Historic St. Charles Riverfront, MO
Shape: Oval
Duration:Fire Works Display
Summary : Oval-shaped ball of bright light (bluish-green) dashed through the sky at a high speed then disappeared within seconds.

My father, stepmother, friend, and I were on the riverfront at Historic St. Charles. We were all seated on the same blanket and looking into the sky. A little off center from directly above us a bright flash of light, somewhat bluish-green, streamed through the sky. It took the shape of a small oval. It was moving at a fairly high rate of speed. Then within about two seconds the light disappeared. Everyone in my party and including a friend of my father's who was also at the same event saw it. I thought it could be a firework malfunction but no sound can from it and it was located far from the barge where the fireworks were being launched. The fireworks that were shot off didn't even come close to the place in the sky where the ball of light was minutes before located. The light also moved horizontally through the sky.
