Bright green meteor fireball streaks over Milwaukee, Wisconsin

A brilliant, bright-green meteor blazed through the sky just north of Milwaukee on Wednesday, February 6th 2017 around 01:27CST (7:31 UT).

The green fireball was seen primarily from Illinois and Wisconsin but witnesses from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, New York, Kentucky, Minessota and Ontario (Canada) also reported the event.


The falling space rock likely burned up in the sky about 10 to 20 miles (16 to 32 kilometers) north of Milwaukee, or about 100 miles (160 km) north of Chicago, according to the American Meteorological Society (AMS).
