NWS: Meteor lights up Arizona skies

The ABC15 newsroom was flooded with phone calls, emails, tweets and Facebook messages Saturday night after several people reported seeing what appeared to be a "fireball falling from the sky."

Reports of a "green and red" flash of light came in from all over the Valley, from Chandler to Scottsdale to Buckeye, Ariz.

ABC15 is working to confirm details, but the National Weather Service tweeted out the "explosion" was a meteor that was also seen north of El Paso.
