Spectacular Meteor With Tail Spotted Over Albuquerque New Mexico

Date:  December 31, 2011
Time:  8:14 p.m.
I saw it too at 8:14. The most spectacular meteor I have ever seen. I was pulling on to I 40 from the Juan Tabo ramp. It was horizon to horizon with a spectacular tail and a quite visible fireball. Wow!!, what a sight.
I actually had time to veer off to the side of the ramp to watch it fade. The first thing I thought of I'm going to see an aerial burst or in impact. I think the only reason it didn't, was it's it's trajectory.
Had it been a more perpendicular angle, we may have had a hefty impact. A truly beautiful sight.
