Experience Level 1/5
Remarks Yes. I could smell it. I was driving in my vehicle on highway 36 (westbound) to Boulder. After the fireball vanished, it smelled like an electrical fire. The smell was only apparent for a few seconds. The fireball started off green, turned yellowish red then white right before it vanished. It started from the north came directly in front of my line of sight then moved slight south before vanishing.
