Fragmenting Michigan Meteor Fireball 07OCT2011

Email From:
Dawn G.-Freeport, MI:
I was heading east on Freeport Rd, out of the village when not quite overhead a large neon blue/green ball following 2 smaller ones shot across the sky from north to south. At first, I thought it might be the lights under a low-flying jet; but the biggest ball had a slight green tail & they all disappeared as suddenly as they had appeared. I assumed they were either parts of a satellite burning up as they entered the earth's atmospere or they were meteor debris. They were quite beautiful. This was in Freeport, Michigan at 6:45 am, on Friday October 7, 2011.     thanks for the heads up Dawn!

Kelly D.-Baden Ontario, Canada:
I am just commenting on a post I read on your site regarding a fireball sighting from someone in Freeport, Michigan this past Friday.  I live in Baden, Ontario, Canada and around the same time (6:45 on Friday October 7th) I was jogging outside when I witnessed a Blue/greenish fire ball move through the sky.  It was moving from North to South and looked fairly large(about a 1/4 the size that the moon appeared).  Just wondering if anyone knows what this was. 
Kelly D     thanks for this confirmation Kelly!
