Observer
NamePennington J
Experience Level2/5
RemarksWe were driving over an overpass and looking to the west because we saw some lightening far away. While looking towards where we saw the lightening the green ball flew downward at a slight angle toward the horizon. It was too large and far away to have been a firework or flare and It looked exactly like pictures I have seen of other meteors.
