Reports Report 4162w (Event 4162-2017)

Name Robert D
Experience Level 3/5
Remarks It was early in the morning. I was driving north on US 89. I saw a very bright bluish green fireball with a long blue green tail and a yellowish white tail coming out from the main body of the fireball. I could see it just over the mountain top out of my driver side window.. At the trajectory and elevation the fireball was traveling it looked like it was going to land in the hills west of US 89.
