Possible Illinois Meteor Fireball 21SEP2011

Email From:
Becky M.-Chicago, IL:
I was walking my dogs in the NW Suburb of Chicago, South Barrington, when I looked up and noticed what looked like a wide meteor crumbling apart.  It was in the eastern sky, falling west to east, at approximately 80 degrees above the horizon.
