I can confirm the same, from Birmingham Alabama. Green fireball that never extinguished and disappeared over the mountain...probably landed somewhere between Coleman and Huntsville? 


Jan 17 2011, 12:31 PM DanielleHults (guest): I saw it as well. At 6:12 pm last night. Unfortunately, I only saw it for a few seconds before it disappeared behind the trees. It took my breath away. Oh, I was in Mountain Brook, AL looking northwest


Jan 17 2011, 9:07 PM Guest91 (guest): I also saw the AL 1/16 fireball for a few seconds. I was near Cullman on I65 North and it was WNW so from Cullman it was in the direction of Moulton. An AWESOME sight!!

Raliegh NC...Meteor/Fireball Report 16Jan2011 
Around 3am EST. Seen westward ~45deg up, moving S to N lasted nearly 5 sec and very slow, maybe traveling 1/4 of sky. Thot was a plane at first (just a ball) but was quite a bit too fast. Don't recall much of a tail, but flared into several pieces at end and dissipated.
