RemarksI saw two trains, swirling pattern just slightly east of the fireball. Fireball was completely stationary from my location. Looked like the glow of a filament in a light bulb when you turn it off and it dims from yellow to orange to off.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI had just moved my car from the garage to the turn around as I was getting a drywall delivery at 6:45. I just walked into the garage when I saw a bright blue flash, I thought someone took a picture from across the street, when I realized nobody was there, I went out onto the driveway and looked almost straight up and saw the glowing orange/yellow ball stationary and it went from orange/red to fading out in about 2 or 3 seconds. Two short smoke trails were just east of the fireball location.
Fragmentation
ObservationNo
