This report has been linked to the following event: Event 721-2020
Observer
NameLarkin F
Experience Level2/5
RemarksI went outside at 1:15 in the morning and as soon as I got outside I witnessed this event. It is the longest lasting and largest (In apparent size) meteor I have ever seen. I would also like to clarify my astronomy experience beyond the 1 to 5 scale. I have an 8" Dobsonian and a small Coronado PST solar telescope which I use on occasion, however, I do not set aside time to observe meteor showers very often (Perhaps once every year). I do not consider myself to be an experienced astronomer, but I am familiar enough with the night sky to be comfortable providing this observation report.

Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI saw a slight flash on the horizon shortly (1 or 2 seconds?) after it passed below the treeline. It is hard to say if my eyes played tricks on me here, but it is what I saw.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksNo extreme fragmentation, but there appeared to be some smaller pieces coming off. These pieces did not spread out significantly from the object. More like sparks left behind.
