Location: Albuquerque, NM
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-5 seconds
Driving south, sometime between 8:15-8:30 PM, March 23, 2017, (Wednesday) in southwest Albuquerque, my boyfriend and I observed a bright green (with some blue) fireball streaking across the sky traveling west. It originally caught our eye as a bright falling star would, but once looking directly at it, was what appeared to be a bright green ball streaking across the sky.

During its travel, it momentarily was behind a cloud and once past the cloud, it was vivid again, until it disappeared.

It traveled like a falling star would, but seemed much closer to the earth, as if eventually it would impact ground somewhere.

It was quite beautiful.
