Large Blue-ish streak in western sky, Glenview, IL

At 12:25am, 12/3/17, I happened to be outside, walking to my neighbors house next door. A bold blue streak of light, streaked diagonally across the sky, positionally 10 oclock across and down to 5:00. It was brighter at the bottom. This was eye level in the sky. Far brighter than any shooting star ive ever seen.

It must have been the same

It must have been the same one that I saw in KS.


I saw something I would say four times as big as I've ever seen a shooting star/meteor in my 36 years. It looked huge from Iowa driving West at around 11ish. It was North West of interstate 80. It fell from a slight angle from South to North St a rapid pace. It slowly degreased in size as it fell and seemed like it would impact Earth. I was greatly concerned and continued to watch for aftermath of impact. Saw nothing.

Dame response

I also thought there may be impact the super moon must be dragging stuff down
