RemarksIt appeared out of the southeast sky as one unit exploding into several pieces with one large unit still intact. My wife and I watch the object for at least 5 Seconds, moving from the southeast sky to the Northeast sky were terminated above the horizon. It very much appear to be similar to the Southern California incident this last week. We looked at their video, look very similar except that when the unit broke apart a lot of debris went forward of the main body which still was intact. Our first impression was it was some kind of space debris, although because of all the information out there about Southern California we thought we would let you know what we saw.
