RemarksFollowing an incredibly bright blue flash that illuminated my entire yard, I saw a single line of bright blue light travelling across the sky from West to East, with a glowing train that disappeared quickly. I could see a portion of its glowing train as it ended, but I estimate that the train lasted less than 1 second at each point along the trajectory as it moved.
Terminal flash
ObservationNo
Remarks-
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksThe line of line came to a stuttering end, along the same linear trajectory as I perceived it - the solid blue line became a dotted/dashed blue line before it disappeared completely.
