The American Meteor Society has so far received approximately 50 reports of a bright fireball over much of the southwestern states of the USA, from Colorado to California. Most of the reports have come from Arizona and New Mexico. This event occurred at 8:15pm MST Saturday evening December 31st.
NASA scientists were able to capture this event on video cameras located in Las Cruces and Mayhill, New Mexico and calculate that the object, only two inches in diameter, entered the atmosphere between Las Cruces and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and traveled a short distance to the northwest toward the Arizona border. The calculated magnitude was -8, which is slightly inferior to the light produced by a half moon. The entry velocity was also calculated to be 16.2 miles per second and the ending altitude was 51 miles. This object was a random fireball as it did not belong to any known meteor shower. Many thanks to Bill Cooke of NASA for providing these figures so soon after the event.

Many in Bay Area heard and saw bright meteor on October 17 Oct 18, 2012
Looking for info on this weekend’s Orionid meteor shower? Click here.
A bright fireball, reportedly with hues of red and orange, streaked across the night sky visible from San Francisco’s Bay Area on Wednesday, October 18, around 8 p.m. local time (3UTC on October 18). Many say they heard a boom, which was so loud it “shook their homes,” some residents said, making them think it may be an earthquake.
Autumn is in full force in the Northern Hemisphere, and that can only mean that the peak of the Orionids meteor shower is quickly approaching. This annual celestial event is the most prolific meteor shower associated with Hailley’s Comet and the second of two showers (the first being ETA Aquarids) that occur due to the Earth passing through the dust of the famed comet. www.spacedex.com/orionids/
RCMP dashcam captures meteor - Video On Saturday, September 21, 2013, shortly after 9:30 pm, an RCMP officer on patrol on a dark highway in northern Alberta couldn't believe his eyes when he saw a very bright fireball crossing the sky. The unusual sighting was capture on the officer's patrol camera which was recording at the time. The RCMP officer had been patrolling along Highway 35 approximately 20 kilometres north of Manning near the Hawk Hills hamlet. www.vancouversun.com/RCMP+dashcam+captures+meteor/8959143/story.html
Researchers confirm meteor as source of flash and boom west of Montreal Sat, 30 Nov, 2013
There's still no video or photos of the meteor, due to the cloud cover from the snowstorm that was passing through the area at the time. However, according to CBC News, researchers from the University of Western Ontario used sonic data collected from sensors on the ground to trace the path of the meteor from north to south, and estimate the size of the rock at around 20 centimetres in diameter. If it belonged to the most common type of meteor (ordinary chondrites), at that size it probably tipped the scales at around 14 kilograms, and would have been a fireball or possibly even a bolide.
For reasons astronomers don’t understand, the rate of fireballs – or bright meteors – goes up by as much as 30% for several weeks around every March equinox. Spring is fireball season earthsky.org/space/spring-is-fireball-season

BRIGHT FIREBALL, POSSIBLE METEORITE FALL: On March 15th, a meteor exploded over southern Germany. The shadow-casting fireball was brighter than the full Moon and it produced loud sonic booms – a sign that it penetrated deep in the atmosphere and may have dropped meteorites on the ground. www.spaceweather.com/
