For a few seconds on Monday, night turned into day as an extremely bright green fireball lit the sky over much of California, Los Angeles, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico, blinding all-sky meteor cameras.

The AMS has received 295 reports so far (and counting…) about of a fireball event seen over San Diego, CA on Monday, April 10th 2017 around 9:00pm PDT (April 11th – 04:00 UT.).

11 of the reports mentioned sound associated with the sky event while 76 reported fragmentation.
