Bright ‘green’ fireball flashes across Arizona, USA

A brilliant fireball was seen streaking across the night sky over Arizona at around 04:26 UTC on December 7, 2019. Witnesses said the light appeared green, likely a "shooting star" but more than a quick flash that such phenomenon commonly produces.

The meteor was seen in several areas across the state including Phoenix, Tucson, Mesa, Paradise Valley, Munds Park, Catalina Foothills, Globe, Scottsdale, Holbrook, and Maricopa. Some residents' home cameras were able to capture the event.

The American Meteor Society (AMS) said they received 18 reports about the meteor. Most of the witnesses said they heard no sound from the explosion, but a certain Ronald D. from Mesa reported otherwise.

The Arizona Republic has yet to promptly confirm the source of the fireball, but observers reported seeing it from vantage points such as 32nd Street and Thomas Road, near the Phoenix Art Museum, or in north Phoenix.

  1. Sorry Carol I saw a green fireball from my apartment complex in Tolleson, AZ at 10:05 PM May 19, 2022 and in my excitement I thought you had captured a similar green fireball on a home rooftop camera while away on a trip to Sedona. AZ. Somehow I missed you were from Nevada and your green orb’s photo was taken by you in Sedona unbeknown untill later. Was it in the vicinity of Bell Rock the well known vortex area? I hope this reply finds you well.

  2. Christmas day 12/25/21 My husband drove me from our home in Nevada to Sedona Arizona for Christmas healing. 12/26/21 WE drove to church in rocks then to Bell Mountain. While my husband parked car pax 2:00 pm walked path towards mountain taking pictures. After coming home I found two shots with a large green ball of light in photo. I accidentally deleted one but have second one. January tests came back tests came back no breast or
    lymph nodes c ancer. I know I was healed by green ball of light
    Sincerely Carol Nolan
