Sitting on the front porch I saw a bright green tear drop shaped light traveling diagonally toward the ground away from me. It was very bright and beautiful. It lasted about 5 seconds and disappeared behind trees. I'm in mt. Holly, NC

Columbus, Ohio
We thought we had seen a shooting star initially but realized it was not high enough or far enough out into the sky, and also looked much larger and brighter than the norm, so cool to see!

I saw it last night at around 10 pm. It was a large, bright light surrounded by a green aura falling quickly downward. I live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It was amazing. I had never seen anything like it.

I saw a bright red and gold fireball with long green tail break/ clouds and streak down west to east into treeline while driving towards Chapel Hill from Pittsboro. My car clock said 10:17pm but it is a little fast-so probably closer to 10:15pm Absolutely Brillant!
