  1. While heading East on U.S. 60 spotted the green white fire ball at the stated time 8:20PM , went South to North at about the Idaho over-pass - appeared at first to be a low flying aircraft but then burned out like a meteor.

  2. I saw it too. We were in the jacuzzi at our apartments in Awahtukee and I saw a greenish / whitish fireball travel across the sky from the south to the north. When I initially saw it, it had a red tail but the red quickly disappeared. Shortly after that, I saw the two orange balls on the west side of the sky. One was falling and the other was heading south. My son and boyfriend saw the orange balls as well.

  3. I live in Goodyear Arizona and I was in my kitchen hosting a New Years Party and out my kitchen window I saw a green fire ball shooting across the sky. We live by Luke Air Force base and by the time I was rationalizing what it was, it was gone. My daughter told me about it this morning and I told her "I saw that!"
