Reported: 12/6/2015 7:21:27 PM 19:21
Posted: 12/10/2015
Location: Albuquerque, NM
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-7 seconds
Bright Green Fireball South of Albuquerque, NM.

A bright green fireball/slow moving meteor with a long white tail.

It was moving relatively slowly (not as fast as other meteors I have seen).

The direction was from east to southwest at a low angle on about a 20 degree trajectory relative to the southern horizon.

It was low in the sky and south of Albuquerque.

It lasted 3 to 7 seconds and disintegrated into yellow, red and white pieces before going over the horizon.

It was the largest, slowest, and brightest, "meteor" I have ever seen.

And the only green one.

((NUFORC Note: Possible meteor?? PD))
