Trip report Holbrook Arizona July 16th 17th and 18th. 

Well made another trip to Holbrook this year and spent three days getting some good exercise and a suntan. Spent the first day on the southside searching the The western end of the strewn field. Got pretty hot that day and called off my search at about 2 PM after needing to find some shade also met up with Jason on the southside who's good talking with him. On day two I searched the northside from the railroad crossing past the scrape area to the west. Had to bail a little earlier that day at 1 o'clock due to storm clouds and rain. On day three I cross the railroad tracks and searched The Southeast  east section. Unfortunately for my three days of hard work I came up with zip but it was great to be out hunting and enjoying the wide-open spaces. But on a side note on the third day I left the motel very early and just as I reached the end of Sun Valley Rd. and as the sun was just starting to come up I stopped my car to take a photo of the early morning sunrise just as I was getting out of the car and still looking to the Southwest I witnessed a very large fireball streak across Horizon I was able to witness the whole thing until it disappeared it was a surreal green color partially covered in clouds very bright I looked on the AMS site later and found that it most likely ended up in the Pacific ocean as a traveled somewhere south of the Mexican border 
Although I didn't find anything but a 19th-century bullet and a dead cow seeing  that fireball made the trip worth it. in all my years I've never seen one myself it was a surreal experience hope the rest you guys find some up there this weekend.
