Experience Level2/5
RemarksIt was the coolest thing I had ever seen in my life. All I know is I saw the whole sky turn bright green. Then (I was driving towards it) I saw it! Was this huge green meteor with a huge green tail and the tail has red and orange coming off of it too then it was gone. I thought it landed at Bradley international airport. I called my friend who lives over there and he saw the green but told me it was way past the airport. So I went online the next day and realized it was seen as far as Maine and Canada. That had to be a once in a lifetime sight for me. I'm glad I saw it.
