Remarksit was almost immediately bright, and was moving quite fast - maybe 10+ times apparent speed of ISS. The trail was about 6 Moon diameters long and had noticeable thickness - not a fine line as if drawn with a star. Within a few seconds, it brightened and enlarged, forming some fragments, which all dimmed within a second.
