Gusty wind, low relative humidities, warm temperatures, and dry fuels will all combine to produce high fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
Museum volunteer Alan Keimig says the museum would like phone calls, e-mails and especially any video that may have been taken of the shooting star around 8:30 p.m. (MDT).
Keimig says the museum scientists want to track the path of the meteorite, and determine its size and whether any of it may have hit Earth.
Keimig says he's received one report from a Kimball, Nebraska man who said he could see the meteorite in the skies above him as he was driving.
Anyone else who witnessed the meteorite is asked to call the museum at (303) 370-6445, or e-mail Dr. Jack Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
