Terminal flash

Remarks-
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksThere was an initial flash which caught my attention and I saw a fire ball with a very long train moving slow enough that I was able to view it for around 10 seconds or more. Behind the main fire ball was 8-12 smaller fragments in a long train, the color of the fire ball itself; blueish orange with the train all hues of yellow, orange, pink and blue.
