From Taylor Ranch Area I just pulled into my driveway at home when exiting vehicle I observed in northeast sky over Sandia Mountains a bright blue meteor falling at about 45 degree angle followed by dusty trail of smaller blue meteors directly behind. Lasting approximately 10 to 20 seconds.

Running inside to get friend immediately returning back outside and running toward street I, a friend and third person witnessed directly above our heads an extremely bright round circular light. Altitude unknown, silent, single bright white light.

Light remained solid for twenty seconds and then closed down like camera lens to a pinpoint size greyish colored dot.

I continued to observe the grey dot as it paused after closing down, then very slowly floated northeast gaining slight altitude moving toward mountain. It paused for short period, then continued slightly changing direction moving direction where blue meteorite had landed in Sandia Mountain. I watched the grey dot slowly float northeast/north until it was out of site possibly over the Placitas area.

The meteorite appeared to have landed north of tram area behind the first mountain range. I stayed outside for awhile waiting or hoping for another sighting. I also reported to MUFON shortly after sighting... maybe Jan 2008.
