Experience Level2/5
RemarksMy wife and son also saw this. A bright ball in the front and it had a blue/green tail. I\'ve never seen anything like this. Tail looked like it was spinning as it went across the night sky. My wife spotted it first and said \" look\". Kind of weird looking. It\'s fishing opener this weekend here. Someone else had to have seen this besides my family.
