02OCT2014 While driving on the I-15, near Washinton Parkway, Utah, my partner and I, we're truck drivers, saw a huge flash in the sky, like a lightening bolt. Checked the sky and it was clear, seconds later we seen a bright, white rock-like meteorite falling to the ground. Unknown of where it touched down at. This was about 0435 mst - F Schiller
02OCT2014 Connolly, J Bountiful, UT, USA 5:00/MST, AM 20 secs SW-NE, Facing NORTH in car at time of event Hugh, Electric Blue 3/4 across sky then jets of orange w/glowing white tail bursting out before passing over mountain. Surprised to see it continue on without fading. Waited a min after passing the mountain in the direction of Salt Lake City (North) and Park City (N-E) thinking it might hit in the distance. WOW! Amazing in all it's Glory. An honor to witness this event. Very Bright,Equivalent to size of moon from my prospective Appeared to project flames from tail just before passing out of sight and continuing over mountain. Absorbing this entire event was my instinct vs missing 3 sec to prepare camera which was in hand but not powered on.
