Duration:10 seconds
We saw a greenish white fireball drop out of the sky on the night of December 26th near O'Hare Airport.

We were on our way to O'hare airport to drop off my daughter. It was getting dark..we were turning off of 90 onto the road that leads into the airport.

All of a sudden we saw a greenish white fireball drop out of the sky. It appeared, fell in somewhat of an arc and disappeared.

We only saw one.


((NUFORC Note: A 10-second meteor is a very unusual occurrence. PD))
