Location: Castle Rock, CO
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-4 seconds
We saw a very bright white light, looked like the moon setting very quickly.

I was traveling south on Hwy 85 passing by Castle Pines Golf Club entrance. Saw what I thought was a shooting star. Very bright white light, looking to the east. I have very dark tinted windows. It had a slight arc. I thought it may have been the moon at first, because it was so bright. I then thought it may have been a firework of some kind and watched for more. I did not notice a "trail", since i was driving...

((NUFORC Note: We believe the witness here is referring to the dramatic fireball at 2153 hrs. (Mountain) on this date, but we are not certain. However, we have amended the time for her. PD))
