El Paso fireball with very nice long lasting train
Just observed a nice fireball with impressive train.Train lasted at least 5 to6 seconds @ 4:33 am MDT.White in color. This event cover about 50 degrees.I could see the light on the ground and reflecting in the sky.  Seemed to come from Pegasus area of the sky moving down to the south west.I believe this event should be in your southeastern sky from the ELP Allsky  location. Fireball lasted 3 to 4 seconds visually. I was up hoping to get a look at Comet C/2009 P1 Garradd but the wind was blowing to hard to set up so I was just
standing out looking nake eye at the sky. The train event was outstanding.The train went from white to a rust red back to white before decaying.The best such event I have observed this year.
