Location: Trinidad, CO
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 seconds
At first thought it was meteor but there was heavy cloud cover behind the path. It formed an arc from what looked like NE to SW of Trinidad.

Because of the overcast sky, I don't think it could have been a meteor/fireball even though that is what it appeared to be. I spotted the object as I traveled north on I-25 entering the southern edge of Trinidad, CO, in full daylight. The speed and path of the object reminded me of a military missile.
