Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIt almost seemed like a sudden lighting up, like how a sparkler suddenly goes. And then it was smooth falling light ball for a second and then it kind of popped and fizzled, and sparked into smaller pieces of falling lights like sparks.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksThe light was smooth and cohesive like a bright white orb for its initial fall or "entrance". It seemed like it was right in front of me. I was on the second floor balcony. Then it broke into two or three smaller pieces fast sparking their own fuses or lights that fizzled out like small trails of sparks. Then they all disappeared.
