Florissant, MO gorgeous green meteor with a reddish orangish tail shortly before 9 p.m.
We were out in our front yard in Florissant, MO and saw a gorgeous green comet with a reddish orangish tail (so close you could even see the fire flaring). I was inside talking about it at 9:05 p.m. Central time so I'm guessing sometime shortly before 9 p.m.. It seemed to dissipate almost into thin air (or possibly the clouds?) just in the next subdivision -- one street over. It was incredible. It lasted long enough that it caused me to do a double take and alert my friend who was walking toward home a yard away -- she still had time to turn around and see it. My kids were also playing four houses down and saw it really well with their friends as well! -Anon,Florissant, MO

Staunton, Illinois  green like firey ball about 8:30-8:45
I sighted a green like firey ball falling from the sky, it was about tree level and seemed to have went out before hitting the ground it was about 8:30-8:45, I was out playing with my daughter and looked toward the combine shed and it was as if it was landing next to it in the field. I thought I was seeing things and my daughter being only 21 months well she can't verify for me, so I asked on facebook if was going crazy, and I was told about this meteor... I live on the outskirts of Staunton, Illinois, near interstate 55... -Lisa J.

Litchfield, Illinois
I'm so glad I found your website. All my friends think I'm crazy. I'm in Litchfield, Illinois. A little before 9pm on June 2, I saw a very bright green light move across the sky from South to North and disappear into the Northern horizon behind houses and trees. Like nothing I've ever seen before. I had it in my vision for probably 4 or 5 seconds. I thought it was a UFO until I found your website. Thank you! -Chris Brandt


Terre Haute, IN. ~10:00 pm EST
June 2, 2011 around 10pm in Terre Haute, IN. I saw it from my backyard. The meteor came from the south and streaked toward the north in the western sky. It was a large bright green ball that sparked into several smaller pieces about 3/4 of the way into it's descent. -Melissa Powell


St. Louis, MO
I saw the meteor last night 6/2/11 in St. Louis traveling from south to north. Didn't note the time (after 8:30ish). We were on the back porch, and I don't know if I was looking directly at the sky or if my peripheral vision first caught it, but it was so impressive and my reaction was so startling that my wife jumped out of her chair (thinking I saw a bug behind her) and still had time to see it continue. I caught it almost directly overhead and watched it into the distant north. It ducked behind some cloud cover for half a second but it seemed the whole deal lasted for 4 or 5 seconds.
Larry M.


Maywood, MO
Guest908 (guest): My wife saw one last night in the Maywood Mo area must have passed through the cloud cover still burning. Was around 9 PM Maywood is just west of Quincy IL


Mt. Sterling, Illinois

Jean Hulvey


St. Louis, MO
I say the Meteor over St. Louis on 06.02.11 right around 8:45pm. I was driving North and saw a large blueish/green round object about as bright as the moon come shooting across the sky on my right hand side heading from South to the North at an extremely high rate of speed. It kept ducking in and out of clouds but as it seemed to pass through them it made the clouds light up and glow. -Richie


Posen, Illinois
While on a walk with a friend last night around 8:45 p.m., In Posen, Illinois, we saw a large bright green light moving very fast to the North. The light also disappeared in the clouds. -Bailey M.

Litchfield, Illinois
I was standing outside in Litchfield Illinois looking to the north about 8:48 p.m. and a light in the sky caught my attention up and to the left. First noticed the big green fireball tracking north behind thin clouds. Maintained brightness greater than the moon throughout it's course of approximately 5 seconds. It broke clearly into 3 or 4 pieces of equal brightness traveling for about another second before disappearing. Brilliant! -Andy Kamp

Xenia, IL.
On June 2, 2011 around 9pm, my 12 year old daughter said she saw a blueish green light going through the northwestern sky in a downward diagnal pattern toward the north and it lasted only about 15 seconds before it went under a cloud. She described it as a ball with a small yellowish white trail. We live about 8 miles south of Xenia, IL.

Approximately 50 miles S. of Indianapolis, IN
Approximately 50 miles S. of Indianapolis, approximately 10 p.m. EDT. - Bright orange ball, yellow tail, with round, white, glowing object at head of orange ball caught my attention while facing West. Instantly recognized and told person , "Charlie, look West Quick!". He turned in time to witness it as it disappeared above a cloud. Four of us saw it. Appeared to come from S.W. moving about 20 to 30 degrees West from North. Low on the horizon, and appeared moving parallel to horizon, coming from behind trees to the left and disappearing above a dark cloud. Seemed to have no effect on the cloud, as the cloud hung in the same general direction ten minutes or so after meteor disappeared. Have no idea how high it was of course, but the white, glowing ball appeared to be about the same size as the highest airliners you would see. Think seen same one, some are describing as green in color. It was the largest I've ever seen -Kelly Ridge

New Athens, Illinois
This fireball on june 2 @ 8:45pm CDT had amazing brightness as it was not dark out yet in New Athens, Illinois. I came around the corner of the house and saw the bright ball at 60 degrees up while looking to the North and it moved down toward the horizon shining through the cloud cover and disappearing twice behind thicker clouds. It must have been shining through the thinner clouds as it was an overcast sky that evening. The light lasted several seconds. - Randall Majzel 

Muscatine IA
witnessed a meteor with a large tail falling in the southwest sky from the Muscatine Mall parking lot approximately 11 pm. It was so bright, we immediately got on-line to see if there was a meteor shower that we were unaware of. Lasted around 2 seconds before fading out. -Anon.

Eldon, Missouri 
saw bright green ball flash for approx 3 or 4 seconds then dissipate while I was traveling NNE on US Hwy 54 near Eldon, Missouri approx 2045 CDT June 2, 2011; meteor appeared to be traveling approx NNW probably the brightest daylight meteor I have ever seen (I've only seen one or 2 during daylight)--very cool -Jeff Wilson

My fiance and I were fishing on a long penninsula in the middle of the cedar river in Cedar Rapids on that night. We were amazed at how clear and long it lasted. So glad to know that other's saw it as I emailed our local tv stations meterology dpt and got no response. -Angela S
