Reports Report 4493b (Event 4493-2019)

This report has been linked to the following event: Event 4493-2019
Observer
NameSteve G
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThe motion photo taken with a pixel phone limits the capture to 2 seconds. I know it missed the fragmentation at the end. It may have missed some of the transit at the beginning as well. The fireball seemed to fall from the sky rather than traversing. I heard no noise associated with it. A storm cell was approaching my location and a lightning bolt had just occurred to the left. I got my phone ready to capture the next one, but instead captured the fireball.
