NameCARLY S
Experience Level2/5
RemarksDriving north on 75, you can look up and watch the planes come and go from the DET airport, little green and orange lights on the planes. A big bright green ball appeared at about the same height as the planes, in the center of the sky directly ahead of me and dropped so fast right down to the ground behind where the Dearborn Marathon plant is. Compared to the planes in the sky, it looked maybe 2-3x bigger and 1000x brighter. For me it appeared directly in front and above and dropped directly down, so perfectly I thought a machine had fallen from the sky, waited for an explosion but nothing.The green turned a little more yellow toward the bottom, maybe even kind of orange/pink. Green was brilliant like a Christmas LED when it first appeared. The planes looked really tiny and dim again afterward. I was in my house for the "big bang" meteor of 2018 here in Detroit, saw the light outside like daylight for a second and all the windows shook. This one did not make noise or explode or flash like that. It didn't leave a noticable tail or a break apart that I could see, it did get a little smaller/dimmer as it dropped. It stayed whole, visually, from where I was. I had to keep driving but I'm pretty sure there was a cloud with an unnatural looking stick/string pointing downward maybe where the thing went through it. Hope this info helps at all, I didnt see anyone mention this today and felt a little crazy, like I was the only one who saw it!
