Arizona Nevada Colorado Utah Meteor 30APR2011

Maricopa, Arizona Meteor ~8:00 pm 30APR2011
I am on vacation in Maricopa Arizona. Last night my friend and I were headed north on the 347 highway and we saw a large fireball coming from east to west. (It was after 8:00 pm) It appeared to be about 10 miles northwest of Maricopa. I was wondering if anyone else saw it?

Guest243 (guest):Last night, 30 Apr.2011, I was driving northeast on I-15 near Mesquite Nv..Just after 8pm I saw a very bright white steak comming from east to west. There was a very bright white flash followed by a white ball with red flame trailing, of course this is from my perspective. It was all over in 2 seconds. Wayne Handsaker-Smith

Flagstaff, AZ
I was in Flagstaff, AZ in the woods outside my cabin, at about 8:30 pm on April 30. It was quite cold and clear. The entire landscape suddenly lit up as if there were a very bright search light illuminating everything around me. It seemed the brilliance of ten full moons on a clear night. I turned to the northeast and saw the bightest blue-white-green meteorite I have ever seen. It was intially a large ball of light as it moved to the north/northeast, dissipating as it traveled and then faded out. It was truly spectacular. I shouted out loud in spite of myself for the magnificence of it. A real wonderment.

I just saw the meteor pass through South Boulder at 10:30 P.M. Really, really red..It had a glow. It was moving very fast. Out of eye sight within 2 seconds. Very awesome. I will always remember this moment.
