    The videos that actually caught it exploding were amazing.
    Cool, I was just honestly completley guessing on that one, I still wish we could get a video of it from outer space, that would be friggn awesome!

    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

    I checked the NASA site but I couldn't find anything about it.

    That would be sweet if NASA had a video of it from space we could see, im sure something had to have captured it on video from space.
