Duration6s
Length
RemarksTrain persisted for about 6-7 seconds after the terminal flash. I believe it came in at a fairly steep angle from the camera's viewpoint.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksThe bright, terminal flash occurred close before leaving the camera's field of view. Impossible to determine if there was any fragmentation for certain. The train it left behind kind of suggests two possible fragmentation points.
