There are reports and video of sightings from the U.S. west coast of the re-entry of 2015-080B / 41178, on 2015 Dec 23,
near 02:10 UTC. It was the rocket body of the recent launch of Progress MS-01. It was the model 11S510, which has an
empty mass of 2410 kg.

On the Meteorite-list, there is word of sightings from California, Nevada, Utah, and Arizona.

I expect there will be many more reports and videos.
