Rockford Scanner™: Man Saw A Weird Object, He Was Wondering If Anyone Else Saw It Too?

RS Fan Bill Farrell:

“I live near the 3300 block of E.State. I was outdoors after dark on Wed. I saw a green object go across the sky from south to north. It wasn’t a comet or meteor as they are not green. it was moving too fast for a weather balloon as there was no wind. I googled it and the explanation I got was that it was either a UFO or Russian spy satellite. I am curious if anybody else seen it.”
