RemarksMy girlfriend by chance happened to witness this too right next to me. I don’t know why we exited the house and looked left when my car was straight ahead, but we did, and we both saw it. I also didn’t know ‘fireballs’ were a thing, or that this site exists. Very cool

RemarksI looked to my left and milliseconds after turning a huge, very bright ‘explosion’ broke the atmosphere, and appearing to come out of the explosion was what looked like a huge meteor that flew faster than any meteor I’ve witnessed and was out of sight in a flash. I’m not sure if it was fragmentated or if it caused a train, I was too surprised to notice. I didn’t know witnessing such an event ever happened in a person’s life
