Experience Level2/5
RemarksThe streak that it left behind was bright and long. I looked on youtube for fireball shooting stars. The July 27th, 2016 fireball space junk re entry would most closely resemble what i saw, but this fireball did not last very long and did not have any noticeable fragmentation.
