Sedona, Ariz., April 27, 2009
Authorities in Arizona said there has been no sign that a large meteor reported in the skies near Sedona made impact with the ground.
A spokesman for the Pinewood Fire Department in Munds Hill, near Sedona, said a crew drove up and down Interstate 17 but could find no evidence of the fireball that witnesses said lit up the sky Saturday night, the Arizona Daily Sun, Flagstaff, Ariz., reported Monday.
Karen Malis-Clark, public information officer for the Coconino National Forest, told the Arizona Republic that officials believe the meteor was destroyed before it landed.
"For some people in Arizona it might've looked like it landed but it didn't," she said.
