Potential for Meteorites Produced!!!
Based on data from three allsky cameras, this meteor was traveling on a heading of 260° about 30 km south of Grand Junction, CO. Its ground path was at least 86 km, its average speed was 18 km/s, and it was very shallow (~6°), burning from a height of 54 km to a height of 45 km over the recorded path. It terminated over the CO-UT border. It was a good candidate for a meteorite producer, but anything that dropped is going to be in hard terrain.

B007 headed toward my home from State Highway 522 North I was roughly 1/2 a mile onto the still paved road,when looking at the whereabouts of my home I saw a HUGE (Much larger than any other meteor I had ever seen) Fade out right about the position of where my house is located.I quickly dialed home and my wife answered and told me she was reading a bedtime story to our son.I can not believe how bright it was and how close it appeared.It seemed so much closer than say Arizona.The abrubt blackout above the perception of my home,had me somewhat concerned.I have heard of nothing since its sighting roughly 45 minutes ago.
