RemarksIt was a long bright, white, glowing train that followed the path of the fireball. It faded out the same way the fireball came in - very smoothly - but it had a small delay to its disappearance, unlike the fireball itself. The fireball turned into a quicker flash of a red/pink blaze before disappearing. The fireball disappeared about 3 seconds in, while the tail started disappearing at about the 3 second mark and ended at about 4 seconds. The entire event lasted 3-4 seconds and it seemed fairly close all things considered! Way closer than any shooting stars I’ve seen before!It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen in the sky in my entire life!! :)))))))) And I thought the beautiful bright moon was something to be amazed at tonight!!!! Hahah(Also I’m unsure what you’re asking for the train length in degrees form, so I have no idea as to the correct answer for you.)
