Winston (near), NM

Sighted on Saturday 28. March 2009

Shape: Fireball | Duration: 3-5 seconds
Source:

Meteor or Fireball between Cuchillo and Winston NM March 28 2009 about 9:30 PM very light and very big.On our way home about 9:30 at night between Cuchillo NM and Winston NM just off Tucker Flat the sky in front of our truck's windshield lit completely up as if daytime had just erupted. My husband and I couldn't believe it was so light if only for an instant. My son (10) looking south out of the backseat said that was cool. Then we realized he actually saw the fireball not just the light flash like we did.He drew a picture of it for us and it was a roundish, white orb, with some red near the tail, with a tail about as long as the orb. If you circle your finger in the OK sign that is how big he described it as being before it went behind the mountain, it was traveling approximately in the same direction we were west, but was out of sight quickly since we were in the foothills of the Black Range it was lost behind the mountain too quickly for the rest of us to see it.I could tell it was very big just due to the light it emitted.
