Reports Report 4562f (Event 4562-2018)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4562-2018
Observer
NameGary Z
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI am a lifelong member of the Chicago Astronomical Society and am the owner of Mount Sangre Observatory, an automated domed observatory in the Sangre de Cristo mountains near Angel Fire NM. I publish an astronomy page in the Taos News and a monthly webpage mountsangreobservatory.com. This is not the brightest fireball I’ve seen, but it is significantly bright and low in the sky that I surmise an impact may have occurred. I didn’t see an impact flash because I was in a canyon and the canyon walls are at least 300 feet higher than the road I was driving eastward on.
