DOOM DOOM DOOM, WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!

Just kidding, this happened last September. There's a creek that runs behind our house that leads to the River. We have a couple nice camping spots where we can fish and not be bothered by other humans. The fish had quit biting, so we went for a moonlight walk on the beach.

When almost back to the campsite, we saw a bright green meteor/comet/fireball/alien spaceship. We see shooting stars quite often and they look like little dots. This thing looked like a large beach ball with a long tail. It was heading damn near due North and was visible for three to five seconds. I reported here, www.amsmeteors.org... but got no reply back.

We are in East Peoria Hellinoiis and fairly close to an airport and military base, so I fully expected to read about the next day in the paper, but there was nothing. My ole lady said it looked like Haleys comet, but I've never seen that so I have no clue what a comet/meteor looks like. Couple questions.

Was it a meteor?
Do they not show up on radar?
Is there a better place for reports than the place I reported it to?

It was the absolute coolest thing I've seen in the sky. Wish I would have had my phone with me for a pic, but I didn't.(So it obviously never happened)

What's y'alls thoughts? And why the hell did it not get reported by any pilots or radar watchers? It was so bright and big I don't know how it could have gone unnoticed by everyone but us. It was cool though. Really, really cool!

The Perseid meteor shower was close to it's peak at that time. That is likely what you saw. I think it is heated copper that emits the green glow.

Or maybe you witnessed a classic Foo Fighter.

I saw one breaking up in the atmosphere bright green and sparks/fire coming off it. Awesome probably landed a few hundred miles away.

It would be awesome to find where it landed! Bet it would be worth quite a bit?

Head over to the aircraft forum on here and search for the Green Lady thread. There's a certain plane people have been seeing which resembles a meteor due to the exotic fuel it burns.

That's a cool chart, thanks for posting!

It resembled the (color) of Boron.

Worth like money and stuff for like beer and pizza? Uh, heck yeah!

I just updated a thread about a meteor burst in Africa from last month. They sent a team into the Kalahari Game Reserve to search for fragments. Now how much does it cost to send a team to Africa, get permission from the game warden, have armed guards in case a leopard is looking at you for lunch, and drive out into the reserve for a multi-week search? My guess, not cheap. That is how valuable these fragments are!

The one just described may be a bit different circumstances because they are trying to close the detection and recovery loop but not by much! Universities pay for fragments. So do collectors.

Cool sighting!

It’s really cool to see a fireball. I believe you count the seconds you saw it for. I saw a white- ish one once . Another time I saw a stationary green hazy thing ( might have bee moving, but it faded out) . I reported mine too, others reported seeing it as well.

A rock from Mars you say. So it WAS aliens!

Off topic, I couldn't find the green lady thread either.

I've seen a couple in my time. I was sitting waiting for a bus in Oakville, when in the distance I saw one low on the horizon. It's was funny seeing that as a major event, yet everyone around me was just more interested in finding a parking space or getting their shopping in their car.

Another time, I was in Trondheim, just walking past the train station and looking up the road going across a bridge into town. Bright green shooting star.
