The Associated Press is carrying a story from Bend, in central Oregon, concerning reports of a bright fireball the night (local) of 24 Dec. I haven't been able to obtain a time to check it against the orbital predictions and see if ANDE was supposed to be anywhere in this area.

Here's a quote from the story:

"Keith Clinton, who lives east of Bend says he saw a "large, bright green fireball descend out of the cloudless sky east of Bend. Clinton says the fireball turned yellow and exploded about 10 degrees above the horizon, breaking into several pieces as it did."
