This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4842-2016
Observer
Name R
Experience Level3/5
RemarksIt was dark, after sunset with clouds that obscured it briefly, then reappeared .5 seconds later before fragmenting. Color was predominantly blue and green until fragments appeared, then white flash and some orange intermingled. Seen maybe 4 fireballs before and this was the largest by far. Trajectory began in what I would call SE Colorado and terminated on a NW view probably way over NW Wyoming. Goodness it was gorgeous.
