Email From:Todd P.-Albuquerque, NM:
Saw a bright green meteor while looking S. from my balcony in Albuquerque last night (Aug 4, 2011) a few minutes before 10 PM MDT. Sky was partly cloudy with partial moon in W. Passage lasted a second or more and went from NE to S where I could no longer see it due to clouds. Was bright enough I waited to hear some kind of boom or sound, but never heard anything. thank you Todd! The ELPALLSKY/Sandia Sentinel Fireball Camera captured the event in the following composite flight image and video. Enjoy!
