2019 GC6 -
It is relatively close and the closest in awhile, but still approx this distance in miles: 143,313.6

Supposedly, one Lunar Distance = 238,856 miles, 
so if you multiply that by 0.6 (0.6 lunar distances) it gives about 143,313.6

(Is this about right?)
I was looking up the heights of satellites I think it will not interfere... (?)

Green meteor burned so bright it was seen from Vermont to South Carolina

By Brian Lada, AccuWeather meteorologist and staff writer

A fireball blazed over the mid-Atlantic on Tuesday night with hundreds of people witnessing the meteor as it lit up the night sky.

A fireball is an incredibly bright meteor that illuminates the entire sky as it burns up in Earth’s atmosphere. Tuesday night’s fireball lasted much longer than a typical shooting star, being visible for nearly 10 seconds, according to videos showing the phenomenon.

Despite burning up near the coast of southern New Jersey, the fireball was visible from hundreds of miles away. Many of the reports on the American Meteor Society’s (AMS) fireball event page came out of the Washington, D.C. area, but some said they spotted it as far south as South Carolina and as far north as Vermont.

The light from the meteor was so intense that the lightning detector on the GOES-16 weather satellite detected the fireball.

People reported that the fireball glowed blue and green in color, with one person even observing that an explosion could be heard as it blazed overhead.

The color a meteor glows as it burns up in the Earth’s atmosphere is related to its chemical composition. Different chemicals and elements will emit different colors.

MadMax, wondering if any connection with the object which was supposed to come close last night or today...
When that meteorite hit Russia there was a close approach at the time. tptb said no connection.

A House-Size Asteroid Zipped by Earth Today

By Hanneke Weitering 5 hours ago Science & Astronomy

It was less than half the distance to the moon

An asteroid the size of a house gave Earth a close shave today (April 18), passing nearer to our planet than any other space rock will for the rest of this year — that is, as far as we know.

Named 2019 GC6, the asteroid was discovered by NASA's Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, just last Tuesday (April 9), nine days before it flew by Earth. The giant rock made its closest approach this morning at 2:41 a.m. EDT (0641 GMT), when it whizzed by our plant at a safe distance of about 136,000 miles (219,000 kilometers), or slightly more than half the average distance between Earth and the moon.

At the time, the asteroid was traveling at a relative speed of about 12,600 mph (20,300 km/h), according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. NASA estimated that the speeding space rock's diameter is "within a factor of two" of 49 feet (15 meters), which means it may be up to 98 feet (30 meters) wide.

Ditto, Barb, thanks for posting.  It appears there were two meteors, one on April 16 and one on Apr 18, but when was that one seen over Russia?  Were there three?  It's difficult to keep up with all the fireballs and meteors.
