RemarksVery short "tail" of light as though it was aiming right at me, just a second, and a bright fiery ball suddenly flared at the end. Literally as though it was a small ball on fire high in the sky. No fragmentation, fire was gold and orange, quite bright though not large. Very different from typical meteor shower streaks.
