Observer
NameMelanie V
Experience Level2/5
RemarksThis was remarkable!! I was closing my blinds and thought an airplane was heading to the field maybe 1 mile away (I live in the flats, and I thought it was VERY close), full of colorful flashing lights at tip, tail, all the wings, underneath, etc. My eyes focused on it for about 1-2 seconds and it took my breath away when I realized it was activity in the sky! I ran outside to try to capture it on camera but could not. 1-2 minutes later I saw two small lights with trails, each with a bright flash light before they disappeared in the same general vicinity as these 15+ lights/trails I saw. Clear sky, not a cloud in sight. Without a doubt the most astonishing thing I've ever witnessed in the night sky. I am by no means anything close to having experience viewing, but I do enjoy sitting beneath the night sky and watching meteor showers and seeing some shooting stars.

Persistent train
ObservationYes
Duration8s
Length-
Remarksmultiple (15+) bright objects appeared moving across the sky for several seconds until they each slowly disappeared, leaving their trains behind which lasted a few seconds. At first glimpse I thought it was a very low flying aircraft full of lights, possibly an emergency landing. As it continued I noticed it had multiple, multiple streaks moving across the sky and it was most definitely NOT an aircraft! Looked as though there were being sprayed, figuratively.
Terminal flash
ObservationNo
Remarks-
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksIt appeared as just a handful of bright lights at first, 5 or so, but at one point I saw at least 15-20 fragments lighting up simultaneously towards the end, until they all dissipated.
