Falling star and multicolored lights

On 6/26/17 At 1:00 am EST , i saw a kaleidoscope of lights multicolored low to ground, at the same time the sky revealed a falling light or star that disappeared over the tree tops. This was sighted in Louisville Kentucky. At first it stunned me, but the lights were beautiful.

While sitting on my deck around 12:00 am 06/26/17.We saw large green glowing light moving very quickly across the sky. We watched until it went out of sight behind a hill. We are in Elkton,Ky

So glad others saw it. I typed in meteorite over Kentucky last night on google and it lead me to this.. I was playing cards with some friends last night around the same time and we all four looked up and saw it shoot across the sky, was big, and pretty low in the sky, moved quickly but not super fast. Was bright green with a bit of orange. Seemed to get bigger and brighter at first and we watched it go out over the tree lines. We are in Lily Kentucky, Laurel county.

Space Junk Falling through Napier Sky

It looked like a huge circle of space junk on fire falling east to west at 5.26pm for 2-3 seconds. Spectacular viewing but who is going to clean up all that space debris above our heads?

Red fireball dropping in western sky near sunset

Friday, June 23 while enjoying the sunset on Lake Bruin in Louisiana USA I saw something that looked like a rocket but falling instead of shooting into space. It was slow enough that I was able to get my camera to snap a photo with a 300 zoom at high resolution. Close up it's just a large streak of fire. This had to be huge.
