Summary : This report is being entered for an aquaintance of mine who told me to contact this sight and inform you. He saw that "blue/green ball" on the 4th of July. He explained pretty much what the radio reports had said. He said most of his family saw it. He explained what he saw without even hearing the radio report. After he told me what he saw, I told him that he matched the reports. He is POSITIVE that it wasn't an airplane or a firework. Other than that, he has no idea. It isn't really that big of a deal to him. He could care less. I just find this facinating. Here is an additional note: One of the crew of radio station KMOX in St. Louis also saw the light in the sky. He saw it while station out on the KMOX building balcony as he waited for the Fair St. Louis fireworks to begin. Try and contact him for more info. They have a website. Just search for KMOX. Thanks. Note: I did not see it.
