Fireball Lights Up The Sky From Missouri To Minnesota

There was a giant green ball of light seen over Wisconsin and other states which was said to be a meteor but it scared many people

There was a big green ball of light spotted over Wisconsin and other states around 10 pm on Wednesday night and it scared most of the people. The big green ball of light is said to be a meteor by the National Weather Service report, as meteor showers were also expected in this area for the past few days. The meteor over Wisconsin and Iowa not only lit up the entire night sky, but also produced a sonic boom which could be heard over the entire area where the Wisconsin meteor was witnessed. The meteor could be seen for around 15 minutes and it moved from west to east. Before the meteor reached the horizon, it broke up into smaller pieces and was lost from sight, if it actually was a meteor then pieces of it might have fallen on the earth somewhere. The big green meteor was a marvelous sight, even though it did scare a few people, but it surely was an experience of a lifetime.
