Location: Dayton, OH
|I was driving southbound on interstate 75 headed to work in Dayton, Ohio, at 1805 hrs..
I was in the Troy, Ohio, area (mile marker 78) when I observed a greenish blue light crossing the sky from the north west falling downwards towards the south east horizon.
From first sight until it disappeared was approximately 5-6 seconds.
I have seen numerous shooting stars (enjoy watching meteor showers). Those I have seen are visible for maybe a second, many with a tail behind them. Although the light made a rapid descent into the horizon, it was not at a split second speed common to seeing a “shooting star” and its bright solid blue green, almost neon color was also not typical.
I am not sure what this was but it was too slow for a meteor (at least I think so) but far too fast for conventional aircraft.
This is the second time in my 60 years of life I have felt the need to report anything in the sky. The last time was in the 80s when I, along with dozens of other individuals saw a ball of fire streak across the sky in Virginia. Originally I thought it was a plane crashing on fire but it ended up being a meteor.
