It was awesome it reminded me of the one I saw on TV in Russia it started with ch I believe but on a smaller scale. I've seen shooting stars many times that lasted a second or two and I did see one before facing southwest in my back yard just down the road from this one I am reporting and it did have a smoke tail it was awesome as well because the end of the smoke was very close heading straight downward. But the one I am reporting from Monday was incredible it was like it was lasting so long my eyes we fixed on it from left to right it resembled a firecracker at first but only it came from high above from left to right coming down on an angle ......so awesome just wish I could recover it cause I feel it hit down but who knows where. I feel it made it through our atmosphere but not 100%. I am just so glad to have experienced this I texted my wife immediately it was really that awesome.
