Reports Report 4167ax (Event 4167-2017)

Name Jeffrey C
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks The attached video was captured by my dash cam while I was driving southbound on AZ-71. The time of the fireball is not exact, but I can say it is between 21:40 to 21:50 AZ time. I stopped the car a few minutes later to upload the dashcam footage to my phone, and I made a copy of the video, so the timestamp on the video is not accurate.
