Observer
NameJudy S
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI'm someone who sits in my backyard & lays back to stare up at the sky to wait for a shooting star. I go out when we're expecting meteor showers & have stayed out for hours on end. This reminded me of what I'd see during a good meteor shower but it took much longer to burn out , it stayed just as bright as when it first started, it came out of nowhere & truly seemed like it was in the town next to us. Its path was downward & spark (maybe a piece of it?) came off it & fell like the big did. If I didn't see it appear out of no where from the sky, I would've thought someone set off a professional firework from the mountain & it went in the wrong direction & went off 2 close 2 the ground. It was falling for what seemed like the longest time It! Atleast 5-7 seconds. It was beyond amazing to us all & its something I'll never forget!

RemarksIt was a very faint, translucent blue glow that followed this. This came out of NO WHERE & at first we thought a shooting star but as I was telling everyone J was sjfh to look at it J thought theyd miss it bc shooting stars are quick. This thing lasted a while. It was super bright white but that solid white faded (its tail) and then that blue trail followed that.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI saw something break off and fall from the front if it. It looked like a spark. It quickly disappeared right after
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksWhat we thought was a shooting star at first, but brighter, not as fast, not quickly fading, kept shooting down to the the earth and had a piece break off /shoot out of it
