Fast fireball going straight down near Delta, Colorado.On the evening of December 10, 2016, my husband and I were driving toward Delta, Colorado, on Highway 50 at a little after 9:00 or so. Through our windshield, we saw an AMAZING FIREBALL that was actually quite scary coming down in the farmland a little northwest of the town of Delta. It appeared to be a meteor that was flaming down toward the land and seemed to extinguish just a couple of hundred feet before impact. Once he concluded that is was not the missile he thought it was, my husband remarked that some farmer is going to find a really cool meteor in his field this spring.I am posting this a little late as we concluded this was just a larger meteor than most, however, others in Delta have been talking about seeing lights in he sky that preceded what we had observed around the same time. I thought I would report what we saw to corroborate any other sightings that night in the area. It was remarkably unusual.((NUFORC Note: We have amended the time of the incident, to reflect a nighttime sighting, which we assume. PD))((NUFORC Note: Witness elects to remain totally anonymous; provides no contact information. PD))
