Shape: Fireball
Duration:5-7 seconds
Fireball accross sky, didnt seem like meteor.

My brother, his girlfriend and I were sitting down in living room to watch ER at 9 p.m. and as the first commercial started after the intro my brother walked into the kitchen. While he was in there his girlfriend and I saw something flying east. At first I thought it was a low plane, but it was very bright and unfortunately I wasn't able to see much from where I was sitting in the living room. But his girfriend didnt think it was a meteor because in her words the flame pretty long. And it was somewhat slow. I wished I could have seen more, and there were no reports the next day.

The reason I post this is because a similar event was posted by a witness in Dekalb that same night.
