I was browsing twitter and seen someone tweet this. Green Ball

For those who do not click links:




BRO I SWEAR TO GOD I JUST SAW THIS GIANT GREENISH WHITE BALL OF FLAMES FLY SUPER LOW OVER CHICAGO LEAVING A SMOKE TRAIL


Although it could be a space rock, I am curious as to whether or not anyone else seen the ball in question.

I'm about a half hour west of Chicago, and I was outside smoking when I saw this thread. I admit, the second I read the title I looked straight up... As if the "UFO" would be there with impeccable timing.

Sadly it wasn't, but thanks for posting. I'll report here if I should see/hear anything skywise.

Woulda been sweet huh! Maybe as the day progresses some more people will bring the object in question up, maybe a news report, everyone keep on the lookout and thanks for the interest!

It seems that Green Fireballs have their own Wikipedia page! Interesting. It says that UFOlogists consider the green balls as some of the best documented examples of UFO's, if that counts for anything.


Also 2 people on Twitter have now claimed to have seen the ball.

Green balls/lights sightings have been posted here recently too. The Aircraft Projects forum people that are "In the know" say it is used on black project/experimental aircrafts. I think it is most likely what they saw was this experimental aircraft and not an alien UFO.

But what is it?

I am not certain, but as I said a couple posts up it could be black project/Experimental aircraft. A green light is being used on the fuselage of certain testing craft currently. There have been many sightings of similar green lights. Check out this thread:

Could it have been a bolide/fireball meteor (which is one possibility you also suspected).

"Green fireballs leaving a trail" could be a description of a bolide.


EDIT TO ADD:

Here is an EXAMPLE of a green bolide meteorite. This is NOT the one in the OP, but rather is the "Peekskill Meteorite" of 1992, so named because a piece of it ended up hitting the ground in Peekskill, New York (after hitting a parked car first).

I could see how people may describe this as a "green fireball UFO". By the way, I witnessed this "Peekskill Meteorite" fireball myself in Pennsylvania back in 1992.

Live in the burbs and saw nothing.

But I have a questions for anyone who was in Chicago on 9/11. Am I the only one who remembers seeing blue lights/balls in the sky? I remember talking to my mother and we both thought it had to be some type of satellite or military shield (since there was no air traffic). But I never heard anyone mention these?

I've seen this is Las Vegas 2 times in about 4 years and it really made me wonder what the heck it was. Green fireball flying low and not fast enough to be a meteor but too bright to be a plane and it just disappeared each time within a few seconds. The last time I saw it it was passing horizontally in front of a helicopter near the Encore casino about a year ago.

Its apparent speed would depend on its angle of approach to you. If it was coming straight at you you might not see much motion at all but travelling perpendicular it would appear quite fast.

If it was a meteor, it would also depend on at what point of its trip throug hthe atmosphere it is.

A bolide fireball meteor may be moving very fast at first, but as it travels through the thick atmosphere, it slows down. a meteor such as the one I showed in the video above (the "Peekskill Meteor") may have slow down to only a few thousand mph by the time it started breaking up. By the time the small-ish broken up pieces of meteorite hit the ground, they are only moving at terminal velocity (maybe 200 mph) -- although, granted, by that time they are no longer glowing fireballs.

Here's another video of that same 1992 "Peekskill Meteor" as it flies over Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. You can see that it does not appear to be moving that fast relative to the buildings (although it is still moving at a few thousand mph, but high enough that it looks slow):

That is very interesting. Those bolides are a good candidate as well. I wonder if maybe they are related to the green orb from the animated trip that is Heavy Metal?
