    I've seen one of those in northern az before. If I recall correctly it was a good 7 or 8 years ago. It was very early in the morning and I was with my father. We were just getting back from a rodeo and putting the horses up for the night when I saw a bright flash light up the whole valley and mountain side. It was very bright, like the arc from a welder.

    I asked my dad if he saw it since he was getting things out of the cab of the truck, but it happened so quickly that he missed it.

    One of the local news papers had a write up about it and said the light was from storm clouds having cloud wars. I showed my dad the article and told him I knew this was wrong.

    I saw the meteor fall after the intial flash.

    The paper was from a town that is located 150 miles from where I saw the meteor.

    Edit:
    Looks like they saw it in flagstaff also. Link

        It exploded due to hitting the earths atmosphere I think, I could be totally wrong its just a thought, I dont really know to much about this kind of stuff so just throwing an idea out there.

          That is exactly what they said. And it was traveling so fast, it broke the sound barrier hence the sonic boom.

          The videos that actually caught it exploding were amazing.
