Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksWhen I looked up at the sky I think it started to fragment before or exactly when I said the objects. It happened so quick it's hard to tell. It went from one large and maybe a couple small ones to 5 or 6 then back to one. My view was obstructed by homes. Could not see after it feel behind rooftops
