Bernard,

Thank you for your bringing this incident to the attention of
the list members! It was an interesting event, indeed, although
I am still attempting to sort out all of the reports and facts,
to determine what the object may have been.

NUFORC received a report from San Diego 9-1-1, reporting that
they had received approximately eight reports, including one
from a retired law enforcement officer. All the witnesses
reported how dramatic, and bizarre, the object appeared,
although some reported that it appeared to be shedding material
as it passed overhead.

Two witnesses in Phoenix reported that the object was almost the
apparent size of the Moon, and that it had been visible for an
estimated 45-50 seconds. If those time estimates are correct,
almost certainly, the object was not a meteor. Meteors typically
are traveling at 12-50 statute miles per second, when they first
enter the atmosphere, which makes a meteor sighting of that
duration quite unlikely.

I have not ruled out the possibility of re-entering space
debris, but those events usually are accompanied by statements
from NORAD, which apparently did not occur for this incident.

NUFORC should have all of the reports it received posted to our
site by Sunday.
