The satellite was possibly the Helios 1B, a French military satellite. (Still confirming this.)

Fireball  :   March 20, 2008  0627 UT

Observer's Comments:  Sentinel missed this particular fireball but it was captured on my secondary system in black/white with sound.
Fireball incidents are very low now in this part of space and this was probably the only fireball over New Mexico the entire night.
Look close, screen left.

Movie :  Ashcraft's Video/Audio Fireball system, with two radios, dual channel sound:
