Just a note... The Fort Collins, Colorado meteor/fireball seems to be
unrelated to the Nebraska/South Dakota fireball.
For the 10-19-11, AMS website has the events at 22:15 for the Fort
Collins, CO event, and 03:15 for the SD/NE event.
AMS Event # 1180
AMS Event # 1183
These are two separate events.
