That giant glowing ball that flew through the sky was a meteor.
The meteor was spotted over Wisconsin and Illinois just before 1:30 a.m. Monday, the American Meteor Society says, but people in Minnesota and other surrounding states also caught a glimpse of the green fireball (a fireball is a term for a really bright meteor).

Here's another video of the fireball:
