Observer
NameAnne S
Experience Level4/5
RemarksThe sonic boom noise also sounded similar to a military training detonation, so I cannot be sure that the two events were related. I did, however, check the flight radar website and there weren’t any aircraft in the region at the time. Time was just after 1am, plus or minus 5 minutes.

RemarksI heard what sounded like a double sonic boom, but it was about 2 minutes after the meteor zoomed overhead!

RemarksIt was a faded, white glowing train that took more than 30 seconds to fade away.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI was facing north when I saw a bright flash with my peripheral vision (on my right side) & when I looked over my shoulder, the whole sky was lit up. Then, the meteor was burning green and blue, when a second white flash lit up at its mid-point directly overhead. (So in total, 2 white flashes... the first one that alerted me to something behind me & the second white flash with my eyes 100% on the object overhead.)
