Here's an unusual tip from a reader, unedited:
Tuesday 1-16-07 I was heading back to St. Paul from visiting my mother in
Rochester. It was approximately 9 p.m. In the sky to my right (east) I
saw a bright green ball with flames coming off the back falling from the
sky. It wasn't like a shooting star or anything I had seen before. It was
so close it looked like it was falling behind the tree line.
I was wondering if you heard anything or had any reports of what it was. I
immediately thought something must have falled off an airplane. It had to
have landed in the farm fields south of Little Oscars.
If you haven't heard, could you give me suggestions on who to contact?
