Location of Sighting: Rochester, Illinois
Date of Sighting: May 10, 2019
Time of Sighting: 10:45 PM CDT
Description: At around 10:45 PM on 5/10/19 my friend and I where standing outside when I noticed a bright orb falling into the woods behind the field of my neighbor’s house. The orb was a hazy white color with a pale green glow around it and a skippy fire looking trail as it went down. The trail had more of an orange glow. My friend did not witness the first one as she had her back to the woods. There was no sound to the falling object which was weird considering it’s appearing size (looked to be the size of a small car). I insisted she stay outside with me and watch the area of the sky with me because I had never seen anything like it. We ended up going inside after about 15 minutes later. About 1.5 hours later we went back outside to smoke and we both witnessed the same sight, roughly in the same area of sky, maybe a couple miles to the right of the previous one. They looked identical except the 2nd one looked closer. Again there was no sound to accompany the falling object. We had no other sightings throughout the night.
Note: The objects could be meteors.
