Did anyone see at 10:10 last night a large fireball in the northeast sky? It was very fast and appeared to hit the ground. I live in Oro Valley.
I saw it. I was looking out over the pool , directly at Pusch Ridge and South towards Tucson.
It was AMAZING. The biggest whatever it was I have ever seen, A ball of fire !! I was also amazed I did not hear it hit.
It could have comedown all the way down in Mexico somewhere.
What a treat

I live in Oro Valley and am an amateur astronomer, but I didn't see it. From your description, what you probably saw was a bolide (meteor). They're not rare.

What you saw was a fire meteor, and yes they are very rare, do not listen to that amateur idiot astronomer, I to saw it from my cabin in the Catalina mountains, and by the way I have been a astonomer for 13 years.
