Location: Billings, MT
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3 seconds
I saw a bright neon green fireball with a tail like a comet streak through the sky north toward the Billings Logan International Airport for about 3 seconds until it appeared to burn out and crash in the sky at which time it appeared to be falling.

It went from neon green to orange, like something on fire, then smokey grey, and then black, at which point you could no longer see it.

My dad had just returned from the Holiday gas station where the cashier there had said to my dad "what was that" and then explained to him what he saw so when I was explaining it to him, he knew what I was talking about.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor from the Quadrantid Meteor shower? PD))
