Location: Las Cruces, NM
Shape: Fireball
Duration:2 minutes
Out side wal mart several people were watching a slow moving fire moving from east to west. They said it has been going for 2 minutes. It was nearly over wal mart when the fire went out, but the object could still be seen as a darker shape in the sky.

This was aprox 1,000 feet up, the flame was flat and wide, and had detail, it looked like the fire you might see from a rocket, traveling about the speed of a plane or helicopter. I would guess the thing would have been the size of a plane but a very flat plane. i would guess the fire was about 100 feet long and 50 feet wide. Deep orange and black with a dark yellow tail.
