Shape: Light
Duration:5 Seconds
Green light followed by white trail in Illinois.

At dusk, a fast moving object descended at an approximately 45 degree angle to the horizon. The object was followed by a white trail, but most notably the main “ball” was a distinct green color. I had seen this accompanied by my fiancé, which we both believed to be a meteorite, although I have never seen such a low flying meteorite to compare.
