Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIt progressively got brighter and larger as it fell, until at its brightest and largest there was a brief burst of more brilliance, but not enough brighter to call it a flash. It disappeared suddenly with a few, 3 or 4, radiant sparks.which fell down at a steeper angle than the main trajectory. There may have been a fragment that ejected at an angle above the trajectory. The fragments were not visible for more than about twice or three times the diameter of the final burst of light, which was about 1/4" at arms length.
