Blue-Green fireball trailing smoke or condensation Oct 24th around 23:00

On Oct 24, saw a flash from inside my car, had my back to it, so don't know what it looked like, but the flash lit up the sky like lightning. It was a blue green light, which I thought must be ball lightning, then from my car window, saw a streaking pinpoint of burning debris, which left a contrail, or smoke, then seemed to go out. heading east to west, towards Ohio. At first thought it was a missle, moving too fast to be a wrecked plane. Stopped car and got out, to hear if there was any noise. I was in a very quiet area, but did not hear anything, but by the time I was out of my car, it was out of site. If it was a meteor, it would have impacted in Ohio, I am guessing, as this location is close to the border.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor. PD))
