Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksYes, it was what caught my attention. I was turned to the side when a bright flash, brighter than anything i have ever seen entirely light up the night sky. It literally reminded me of the flash a nuclear bomb displays immediately upon explosion. About half a second after the flash my friend and I turned to look where it had came from and were nothing short of dumbfounded/amazed at what we saw.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksAfter turning toward the direction of the flash I saw what looked like a gigantic smoldering rock , black in nature only outlined and highlighted by the bright orange seemingly fragmenting it like a puzzle, it was in one piece at the time with a tail of bright orange following it. Within 1-2 seconds it immediately completely fragmented and emitted a bright green and blue, similar only to the green and blue ive seen in an aurora borealis, which then disappeared only leaving a trail of white sparks which then disappeared. The entire experience lasted 3-6 seconds.
