Location: Florissant, MO
Shape: Light
Duration: 1-2 seconds
Summary : Several of us had just finished watching the 4th of July fireworks when we saw a bluish/green light streak across the sky. It seemed to appear from nowhere and disappear just as quickly. Elevation was rather low, about cloud level.

At about 21:30 on the 4th of July several of us saw a bluish/green light just streak across the sky. It was only visible for 1 to 2 seconds but was moving very fast from an east to west direction. It appeared that the elevation was only about cloud high. It was moving so fast it was difficult to get a shape but reminded me of a tip of a flame from an aircraft engine. However, this was moving much too fast to be an aircraft and we did not hear any noise. The observers were a family group. Males and females, ages 18 to 45.
