I was driving down HWY 22 from Muscatine towards West Liberty (West, When I saw a fireball come out of the sky about 20 miles away (App.)The other witness was a friend of mine who was on I-80 traveling west. She thought it landed further away. It was about a quarter the size of the moon. It was a orange/red color though the other witness said she thought it was a greenish color. I did not see it land, nor did I see an impact explosion of any kind. Possible space junk. more then likely not a meteorite.
