RemarksI have seen a similar fireball in the past. I would say that the one I am describing tonight was EXTRA special. The colors were brilliant and unmistakable. The sparks came out like a spiral around the tail all the way down. I also want to note that I choose the 10 second max but it took all of that 10 seconds maybe more. I saw it from start to finish and it actually scared me because I thought for sure it was gonna impact the earth. I assume hundreds of people brobably saw it seeing as it was right over Fort Worth Texas. If your a rock hunter and you get a few more reports on this asteroid I’d try and triangle it’s position you’ll probably be able to find this one. It showered quite a bit.

RemarksIt was amazing it came in as white with a long tail then changed to blue and green. The trail was filled with whirling white sparks that made their way out of the train. So from my perspective their was sparks flying off the front and then getting caught in the jet behind as they faded away.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksAt the end it dimmed out a little and then fragmented. I would say that it for sure showered some rocks down somewhere inside the Fort Worth loop 820 east side outside of down town.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksSparks shot out of the front and almost directly straight down towards the earth.
