Fireball 'bright as moon' seen in California, Nevada

The descriptions of this event suggest that it was a large meteor breaking up over the region on the night of November 24. The Leonid Meteor Shower took place between November 17 and 20, but the shower was exceptionally weak this year. Most of the Leonids are no larger than a grain of sand, so this object is unlikely to have been associated with the shower.
