Holbrook AHolbrook B

Between 6:20 and 6:40 p.m. on a partly cloudy day a large fireball was observed travelling in an ENE direction over the eastern Arizona towns of Winslow and Holbrook. It was reported that “One large explosion was quickly followed by several small ones in rapid succession. Charles Von Aachen and his son then saw numerous stones fall at Aztec, raising many puffs of dust for a mile or more over the dry sand of the desert, like those produced by bullets or the first drops of rain in a heavy shower.” (Foot, 1912)
