I couldn`t believe my eyes while on a smoke break after studying for a midterm. Lasted ~1.5 - 2 second as far as i could see it. After that,the trees blocked my view.

Phoenix, AZ bright blue 3:30-ish am 10MAR2011
I actually just now saw a meteor like you described over Phoenix, AZ. It was incredibly fast moving and bright blue with a long red tail. This occured March 10, 2011 at about 3:30-ish am. Amazing! As I stood, it appeared to be moving N, can't speculate whether east or west. Lasted around 1.5, maybe 2 seconds as far as i could see it before losing it in the trees. - Anon.
Thank you both for your report!

Anyone else with info or photos?

I too saw the trail of a meteor/star and followed it to the descending object around 3:30 pm on Thursday March 10, 2011. The odd thing is that i'm in Barbados. It was my first time observing anything like that so i have been trying to find other local accounts online...to no avail.

I saw several fireballs on April 8, 2011 @ 8:51 PM. From my home in Scottsdale, they seemed to be over the Tempe, Az area, From my usual viewpoint, that too is the flight pattern to/from Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. I first saw one and wasn't sure what I was seeing. I continued to watch and saw several others. It was amazing. They actually looked like balls of fire with tail trails.
