Description: I saw a bright green light with a tail shoot westward in Chicago, Illinois last night (2/26/12) around 11 PM. After doing some online research is that there have been sightings recently over Chicago about every month, and they all report a green light darting. (This is weird.) I don’t know the frequency of meteors in the area, but it is strange that they all appear in the same color/description and are also reported being seen between 10 and 11 PM.
Note: The witness probably saw a meteor with significant copper content. However, the witness makes a good point in why similar sightings have been routinely occurring in the Chicago area.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description. Comments will be published if they are in "good taste" and not inflammatory.
