RemarksI was travelling on the interstate 65 in Kentucky. I was just North of the city and the fireball entered my view from the Southeast and traveled Southwest. It began as a bright white object and as it came closer to the horizon the object changed into a green color just before leaving my field of view. I was in my vehicle so I heard no sonic event.
