Observer
NameBob P
Experience Level3/5
RemarksI am a pilot and retired air traffic controller and I noticed alot of bright stars and aircraft. This streak could not have been an aircraft because of it's speed, brightness, location and direction. The light ended abruptly in a way that may have been a disintegration. It seemed to expand slightly but hey it was quick... 2.5 sec or so.
