    Could be green depending on your perspective and distance.  It was near Douglas. I am trying hard to remember what year... maybe 1994?  I was heading south and it didn't come in on a shallow angle but a rather steep one - very fast. It took me a second to realize what it was, and by that time there was only a faint trail of dust hanging high in the atmosphere

      I saw a green fireball from Tucson, but I think it was a bit later than 1994.  Probably a different one.  I remember that I looked for something in the paper at that time but didn't see any mention of it.  Thought maybe you could confirm that I wasn't crazy, but I guess the jury's still out.
