Reports Report 1276a (Event 1276-2018)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1276-2018
Observer
NameJoe M
Experience Level2/5
RemarksOriginally I thought the fireball may have been the Chinese space station debris due to the expected crash reported to happen this weekend but I'm not sure. I've seen several meteor showers but never a bright, persistent fireball such as this one. The speed seemed rather slower than most meteors I've seen in the past, but certainly brighter and longer lived hence my thinking that it may have been space station debris.

RemarksThe fireball appeared to have several droplets coming off the head end these didn't last longer than a couple hundred milliseconds. I noticed a thick contrail about 20 minutes later, far higher in the sky than the fireball, may have been unrelated.
