Location: Vernon Hills, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 1 second
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Green ball of light blasts forward and disappears in Vernon Hills, Illinois.

I saw one green ball of light that zoomed off in a forward direction away from me and instantly disappeared all in about a seconds time. The object seemed to be much closer to the ground than a meteor, I would guess that it was about as close to the ground as a helicopter usually is. The object did not appear to be very large, even though I was far away and am not certain, I would guess that it could not have been bigger than a helicopter. The object also had no smoke or dust trail. The color of the object was a bright green, slightly darker than lime-green.

I was the only observer of the object. I am 20, live in Vernon Hills, and I am a full time college student at Depaul University in Chicago.
