RemarksThe streak became a bright flash over 4-5 seconds (it was longer, but I'm describing what I saw directly) that was very bright, like a manganese flare. From the flare I think 4-5 pieces broke off at +/- 10-15 degrees from the original trajectory with a slight arc to earth. The event was silent until I heard the blast about 4 minutes later.
