Brightly lighted clouds observered.

In this area high in the mountains about 60 miles north of Albuquerque, we observed very bright illumination of the clouds at the same time others reported seeing a bright fireball. Sandia National Laboratories observed this object on a fisheye-lens camera which they use to view the entire sky. The video was shown on Albuquerque television. The object was so bright that it saturated the camera; the entire sky turned white.
