Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI saw it moving from north to south in the eastern sky with a tail like a huge comet or shooting star and it flashed very briefly, I think it was right before it disappeared. It lasted only about a second or slightly more and I was so dumbstruck by it, I'm not exactly sure at what point it flashed. It was a very bright green, and the tail was green too.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksThe ball itself disappeared without fragmentation, it was pretty well defined, but the tail looked fragmented, like smoke. The tail was quite long, but it did not last longer than the fireball itself. In other words, when the brightest part of the fireball died, there was no lingering tail.
