RemarksI was driving and it was the flash that first drew my attention. The sky lit up as if a full moon had just come out from behind a dark cloud. I was almost certain I hadn't noticed a moon earlier on my drive and I knew the sky was clear because it was very cold outside. I've seen many shooting stars before but this just blew my mind! I've never seen anything light up the sky the way this thing did. It was comparable to a firework. When I got to work I asked if anyone else had seen it and two of my coworkers did. We were all amazed by the brightness. As for fragmentation, I only saw what appeared to be a tail coming from the trailing end of a round ball. It seemed to "shoot" or fall almost perpendicular to the ground. It certainly seemed to be moving much more vertical than horizontal. I've never witnessed anything like this before so I'm not certain that what I saw could be described as fragmentation.
