Observer
NamePaul K
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis meteor appeared to have a steep angle of decent. I had my gps present and recorded my location at approximately 35 degrees 10.979'N, 106 degrees 38.820'W, at that time I estimated the heading at where I last saw it at approximately 250-260 degrees. When I saw the shards after it exploded I was wondering if there may be a strewn field, but without another observation vector it could have been 5 miles or 50 miles west of where I observed it.
