NUFORC Sighting 12343

Occurred: 2000-03-09 20:30 Local
Reported: 2000-03-15 00:00 Pacific
Duration: 3-4secs
No of observers: 3

Location: Conway, AR, USA

Shape: Fireball

The same night a fireball landed in England Arkansas, I saw a (meteorite) GREEN in color with an ORANGE tail of about 2 ft. in diameter about .25 miles away 1000 ft. above ground and dissapear over a ridge in Conway Arkansas. I saw it for about 3 secs, but can specify exactly where, and at what rate it was travelling. It is my beleif that it either burned up before it landed, (about 200ft. above ground) or I couldnt see it land due to a ridge nearby.

I wish to be contacted about this information preceeding the report I will submit to the offices of emergency management. I wouldnt have sought to release this information, as I thought it was insignifigant, but I heard on the radio that there was an anomolous occurance that night with a fireball sighting. I was urged to divulge what I knew as I thought that I would possibly have been one of the few to see this land. I am knowledegable in the field of physics, and somewhat in astronomy. I can give a scientific account concerning where it was in the celestial sphere. I know it was very close.
