On the American Meteor Society website, reports came in from Kendallville and New Haven, Indiana.
A report from New Haven says, "There was a streak across the sky ending in a small explosion. The terminal flash was a greenish blue color."
The event is still under investigation but the preliminary trajectory indicates the fireball was traveling from southeast to the northwest.
It was bright and visible until North Benton, Ohio.
Meteors and meteors of fireball magnitude are not rare and thousands enter the Earth’s atmosphere each day.
They aren’t always seen because they happen over oceans, unpopulated areas and sometimes occur in daylight.
However, if this event is confirmed, this meteor could have been a rare fireball with a colorful burning blue or red tail.
