Hi Ron/All,

Fireball ended up in the Pacific Ocean a good 100 miles off the coast of northern Baja.
It was recorded by at least 5 all-sky cameras in addition to the dashcam video from
I-5 south in Mission Viejo. Time of the event was 9:38:00 pm PDT (4:38 UT).

Did you see it? Green fireball lights up skies over Southern California Orange County Register April 26, 2016

A few people across Southern California were startled to see a green fireball in the night skies Tuesday.

Around 10 p.m., according to a report by CBS Los Angeles, the fireball was caught on dash cam video as it streaked toward the ground. The object could be seen from the Mexican border to the northern part of Ventura County.

What was it? U.S. Strategic Command says it does not believe that the fireball was a man-made object. In a statement, the agency said the object did not appear to be one of the agency's tracked satellites.

Ed Krupp of the Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles also said he had no idea what the object might have been.
