Allsky cameras throughout New Mexico captured a major bolide(s)/meteor fireball（ｓ） at approximately 9:03 pm MDT (03:03 UTC). The fireball was traveling SSE to NNW, one of which flew directly over Albuquerque, NM producing sonic booms as reported by Thomas Ashcraft of the Ashcraft All Sky Meteor Observatory in Santa Fe, NM.
The "Event 3" was visually observed from El Paso All Sky Camera in El Paso, Texas by Jim Gamble. Initial estimates place the magnitude of the event at a -11 (nearly as bright as the full moon).
"Event 3", captured by the Ashcraft Observatory had a duration of 23 seconds with no terminal detonation detected, even though sonic booms were reported.
Additional data/video from Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, NM. and New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM. will be released later when available.
