Remarksvery long glowing white train (with hints of color), could have been smoky, but the cloud cover was distracting
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
Remarkslarge and bright, very colorful. I was looking at the moon and remarking how bright it is tonight, even with the clouds. Suddenly, a big flash brighter than the moon streaked into my vision, followed by the very long train, which glowed just as bright, until it all faded. If you can imagine how big a plane looks in the sky from the ground, this was quite a bit bigger.
