|October 1, 2006 meteor reported across skies of Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado
I was watching TV. The lights were out the window shades were open. I noticed a white movement out the window. I jumped out of bed saying "What it that?" "What isss that?" My husband stirred. It looked like 4-5 very large thin oval shapes, directly in a line, low in the sky heading east, I was looking south. The movement was just slightly south/east. There were long thing clouds in the sky, it was clear. It seemed bright- mostly from the not full moon but also from the light. There was no sound. I said, "look, oh wait you missed it" (the items had just disappeared behind the siloette of a tree. "Wait, look to the left of the tree you will see it come out"...nothing did. I couldn't believe it. I descibed this to my husband. The next few days I could not let it go. I went to a UFO sightings website (something I had never done before)and looked for sightings. Several people descibed seeing something similar at about the same time and day. I did not report my sighting. But then, Saturday, I read the Friday Colorady Daily newspaper, where there was an article about a man who is a meteor hunter. It stated he searched for marble-size rocks in a 50-mile strip of Colorado.There was a picture of him holding a piece of the meteorite that occured on Oct. 1, 2006. One of the brightest meteors reported in recent years slow-danced across Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. Apparantly landing south of Colorado Springs. And he was holding a piece of it that looked about the size of a coconut.
