Arizona Meteor Fireball 23nov2011

Robin and Dan C.-Mesa, AZ:
Hi, When I was out walking my dogs last night (Nov. 23, 2011 just after 8 pm) I saw a falling green light in the sky.  I live in Mesa and I was looking toward Phoenix.  I couldn’t figure out what it was because of it’s green colour and the angle of its fall (not straight down, but at angle).  Then it just disappeared and I didn’t see anything further on it. Sorry to be vague, but I wasn’t expecting to see a green light.  We live near the flight path to Phoenix airport and we’re used to seeing planes fly overhead at night, but they are never such a bright green colour.  It was the bright green colour that got my attention.
I hope this was somewhat helpful,  Indeed it is and thanks for your contribution!

Last night we watched a reddish-orangish ball slowly ‘fall’ on the NE side of town. It would fade then get bright again, sort of like someone smoking a big cigarette in the sky. Not sure what it was, but it was cool! All I could think about was all the ‘end of days’ horror movies. I live in Las Cruces, southeast part of town (?). We saw ‘it’ November 22, Tuesday night around 8 – 8:30. Serena  Thank you Serena!...Checking NMSU All Sky Cameras for video. Will post if/when obtained

Hi Jim,
Just touching base and wanted to see if you had any info on the large meteor that passed over this evening.  I was setting-up my imaging system, when it passed over, about a quarter to 6 this evening (11/22/11).  I took some notes after it passed over and I have the exact time on my imaging laptop. It spanned more than 90 degrees across the sky.  It was brilliant white and began to break-up as it passed to the NE, just before the fireball extinguished.  It was traveling toward the ENE.  By far, the best meteor I've seen in my lifetime. Did you gather any data on this one?  I'd really be interested to hear.
Eric  Thank you Eric! Any other witnesses from El Paso, Las Cruces, Alamogordo, Cloudcroft, Ruidoso, and surrounding communities ??  Please send your description to wxtx01@gmail.com for posting to this site. Specifically need color descriptions! Thank you!
