This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2779-2020
Observer
NameDominique N
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis is one of the significant fireballs I have seen, but small in comparison. Whereas previously the ones I saw seemed significantly large and shocking, this was like a sparkler firework. It appeared in a clear dusk sky, flying horizontally overhead. I saw it very distinctly for about 2 seconds before it appeared to breakup with one bright sparkle, and then disappeared mid-sky with no trail.
