Location: Rockford, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:3 Seconds
We saw a fast moving green light (with no tail) in the sky above the horizon and just below the moon.

My Boyfriend and I were coming home from seeing a movie in Rockford. It was about 11:30 p.m. when we saw a bright green light "shoot" across the sky moving in a southwest direction. The light moved in a straight line at a very high velocity, with no tail. From the moment we first saw it, it seemed as though it appeared out of nowhere, it shot acroos the sky and disappeared in an instant. The light seemed to be traveling just below the moon. Even though it was a little after the 4th of July, it traveled much to far and fast to be any type of fire work or flare. My boyfriend and I don't particularly believe in aliens, but what we saw couldn't be identified or explained by either of us.
