RemarksObject had two main parts. smaller part slightly ahead of the larger part...fragments (pink) could be seen above and behind main bolide (white). It reminded me of the footage of the space shuttle breaking apart over Texas! It came directly over the house and had come from the Gulf of Mexico and continued east over the horizon.
