RemarksThis meteorite was amazing it came out of the southeastern sky and at first I thougt it was a firework, being New years eve but I watched as it went behind the Catalina Mountain Range and I could see the outline of the mountains. This was an amazing event. The color started out white but when it got closer it started to break up into blue and green colors. It was not a firework! Amazing!
