This very well could have been a meteor. There is very little information here, other than the name of the Captain that made the report. The sighting
was very brief, some 10 seconds, and the description is in line with many other reports of "fireballs" from that time and area.
It is worth noting that the agent who investigated this report was the same one that had made his own report just the day before of a 45 minute long
sighting. It can be found here as "Alamogordo, NM Sighting 06JAN50 Classified (ASTRO: Canopus)". This lends more reliability to the agent's report,
as he seems to have been very active in investigating these things.
