I’m a 24 year old Male, with two college degrees. One in hard science, one in architecture. I have had sightings before but I like to think it’s because I pay close attention to the sky at all times.

Last night - the night of May 8th, 2018, I was at a friends house. I was standing in the backyard and happened to be looking in the sky, slightly to the SW (looking in the direction of Thumb Butte for those of you who know the area) and all of a sudden a fiery ball of light that pulsed between green and yellow light frequencies streamed through the sky at high speeds. It lasted for only about 5 seconds. Right when it entered our field of sight, the 4 dogs that live on the property started freaking out.

This was not a meteorite. I have seen multiple and many meteorites at varying distances in our atmosphere, and this was not one. It was too low and not fast enough and the color was not that of a meteor burning up.

Only one other person in the backyard saw it with me.
