Location: Mariposa, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:couple of seconds
it appeared to be a meteror entering the earth's atmosphere and was large enough that it may not have completely burned prior to impact

I believe the object was a meteror, however, no current news reports substantiate that observational opinion. The object entered the atmosphere as a large ball of light (fire?) with a long tail that turned green as it moved rapidly across the horizon from west to east. It appeared to be in close proximity to northwestern usa. I don't believe the whole object burned-up before impact which I propose is somewhere within a couple hundred miles of 95338 (Mariposa,CA).
