Observer
NameJonathan W
Experience Level2/5
RemarksPossible minor fragmentation immediately around the head but no visible secondary streaks where seen. It looked like the head was slightly sparkling as it passed. From my vantage point it was very bright and larger in the sky than any airplane lights or stars. At least 10x larger than the brightest star out at the time.
