RemarksThe train was glowing directly behind the ball and burning ashes appeared to be falling from it. There was a bright smoke trail about 26X the diameter of the ball. (I took a video of it with my phone, and I measured a still frame of the ball and the smoke trail on the screen with my calipers.)
