This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2872-2019
NameK Fred B
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI had headphones on at the time, I was listening to music on a 3rd story roof until I saw it. The music stopped when I hit record, but I didn't even think of my headphones. In terms of size, perspectively... like when you pretend to pinch the moon and it's about an inch (maybe 0.5?) of light between your fingers ... this was at least a foot wide streak at first, before stretching out. It's hard to get just how big it was from the video, it makes everything look so far away and insignificant. Really, it was massive and beautiful with all that orange and these little fleeting specs of greenishness. At first, it almost seemed like it was right over me, but it wasn't really, it just seemed like it, the way it stretched out then (a bit more horizontally). Where the light faded, that's about a mile or so south of Mar-a-Lago, for popular landmark reference.

Persistent train
RemarksIt had the glowing train to start (too dark to tell about smoke), then it got shimmery and as the orange faded, there was still some glittery trail left for a bit (you can sorta see it in the video).
Terminal flash
RemarksI don't know about a specific flash, I was facing a different direction for a moment and when I turned back toward the east, this was going on ... but it started off wider and... oranger. Before I could get the camera going, in those 10 seconds, it wasn't quite so vertical and almost seemed to be stationary (not really, but almost like it was ... sorta like clouds sometimes). Then it stretched, and as it did, the front part pulled away, and you could see tons of "tiny" bits in between the two main pieces, plus all the shimmering fragments.
