Shape: Fireball
Duration:Few seconds
A Green Fireball fell from sky close to O'Hare Airport Chicago, IL.

I was driving on I-294 North bond, around one mile south of Dempster, I saw a greenish fireball falling from sky in North west side of Dempster & I-294, tried to open phone camera but too late, and I called 911, which was transferred to close by Police Station, officer asked if I heard any sound, which I did not. To me if it was a plane, it would be a small plane. Surprise was that it disappeared half a mile above earth.

This kind of light I have seen second time in Chicago, previous was during Sept-Oct 2016.
