This report has been linked to the following event: Event 1890-2012
Observer
NameMike T
Experience Level1/5
RemarksWas driving at the time so there was plenty of light pollution but the fireball appeared almost directly in front of me and was much brighter than stars (clear skies) so it caught my attention. Initially thought it had to be a firework since I've only ever seen "shooting stars" before but since the Leonids are going on, it could have been a meteor.

RemarksDefinitely saw it break up into two or more pieces before disappearing. Honestly, it looked like a firework. If it wasn't for the Leonids going on (which I didn't know at the time), I would have assumed it was a firework. Still might have been.
