Observer
Namepete G
Experience Level4/5
RemarksI was looking west and saw an appearance of a light fast approaching, thought it was the space station, It was moving very fast for a plane or space station, then the light grew brighter and brighter till it moved directly in front of me at a 45 degree angle and exploded into a fireball (very bright) and broke into 3 pieces, then slowly breaking into several pieces leaving a long contrail, It broke up like it could have been space junk re-entering. No sound. I viewed it from horizon to horizon. Pretty Amazing.
