This sounds like another report that might be part of the Green Fireballs sightings in the area of New Mexico in the late Forties. They were seen across New Mexico and were investigated by Dr. Lincoln LaPaz. Most were classified as meteors, and for the most part I would agree, but I just wonder why this phenomenon was so exclusive to New Mexico.

Why weren’t they seen anywhere else?

This, like many other reports of "green fireballs", remains just another meteor mystery. Why would so many be noticed over Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, and yet be relatively rare elsewhere?

One would think that these would have to have a high copper content, or some other property that set them apart. But the law of averages would make one think that these types would be randomly dispersed among all the others seen. And yet, year after year during the '40s and '50s we see these reports from one small area of green ones.

While I can see no reason to think that this case is anything but a meteor, I am stumped as to the nature of an event repeating itself so often in a certain location.
