Incredible view here last night in Colorado of a giant fireball that moved slowly taking at least five seconds before it went behind the Continental Divide while still visible at 10:54 PM on Monday, February 23, 2015.

Among the observers of this spectacular skyshow, the event was witnessed by Leonard David and Barbara David from their vantage point at 9,000 feet in the Colorado mountains between Boulder and Golden.

Both are active members of the Coal Creek Canyon SkyWatchers organization.

This reentry is confirmed here by the American Meteor Society:

According to space trackers, the fireball and associated fragments were caused by the reentry of a Chinese CZ-4B rocket body.

The Aerospace Corporation carried this prediction:
