|On April 20, 2007, at approx. 10:00 PM, blueish fireball descends low near downtown Littleton, Colorado.
We live in a west facing home in Littleton, Colorado near historic Old Downtown.
On the evening of April 20, 2007, a light caught my eye above the shutters of our living room window. My split second reaction was that it was a plane or helicopter since the light was the right size, color and distance.
However, it was moving quickly at a downward angle so my second thought was a plane or helicopter crashing. I moved quickly to the window and watched the blueish fireball descend behind the trees. It was large enough and low enough in a highly populated area that I expected to hear a boom or sirens afterward but haven't heard any reports.
My husband was with me at the time and even though I startled him with my reaction, he missed it.
This all took about 3 to 4 seconds.
((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor, we suspect. PD))
