RemarksLooked like a long thick streak of light that almost seemed to burn out once and in the same instant flash into a continuation of the same long bright streak. Looked like it turned into a yellow flash at at that moment of burnout reignite. It was the brightest white before and after the yellow burnout. Seemed to change to also be a very bright light blue somewhere between those phases as well.
