Location: Jordan, MT
Shape: Fireball
Duration:<1 minute
25 miles from Jordan, Montana, driving North on hwy 200, 7:40pm, November 17th, 2016...the sky suddenly lit up, so bright like it was first thought was that the moon had come out from behind the clouds and then I remembered we had had a full moon several days ago.

Off to the East, I saw what I can only describe as a "comet", or what I think one would look like. It was a bright green bright ball with light trailing behind it, tails? And it fell off into the dark sky and disappeared.

The entire experience was less than a minute, feels considerably longer because of how detailed I remember the experience being and all the thoughts I had in the few seconds trying to rationalize what I saw
