Raymond G.-Denver CO:
Last night - May 3 around 11 PM - I went out on my west facing porch here at S. Steele Street and Louisiana in Denver, and was stunned to see what looked like a firework exploding to the west, northwest, over the city of Denver. Very bright chunks of light, lasting very briefly, and then disappearing. I thought it was fireworks at first, but it clearly was something else. So I got on line first thing this morning, and saw your website.
I hope this is helpful, and look forward to hearing more.   so do we, and thanks Raymond!

Leslie C.-Denver CO:
Hi, I just came across your website when searching online for something similar to what I saw in the sky tonight (may 3rd tues). I live just north of downtown denver, and went out in the backyard to hang up laundry when I saw it just past the rooftops- it was really close- about the size of your hand when you hold it up compared to the stars. it was greenish blue like a really hot flame with white/yellowish around it and a tail. I think I was facing west or slightly southwest and it went from left to right very low in the sky.  It looked like it landed maybe 20 blocks away or something. I thought someone was shooting off a firework at first, but it was so huge and rectangular in shape, not round. Have you heard from anyone else about this? Is it a fireball or something else? Please let me know if you find out. Thanks, Leslie   Excellent report, thank you Leslie! Time?
