Observer
NameAnnie A
Experience Level3/5
RemarksThis is one of the most impressive incredible things I've whitnessed in my lifetime. I've seen a full solar eclipse, sky full of northern lights three times, the eruption of Mt. St. Helens and the first eye contact with my newborn child. I am still a bit in shock at what I just saw out here in the middle of nowhere on my way to check on a calf in our herd that was premature. I do have one photo of the trail. Just wish someone else had been there to see it with me!!!

RemarksLong continuous trail of sparks across entire eastern sky traveling north east towards spokane. Contained numerous fragments which slowly separated but remained in a cluster which lasted at least one minute. Long enough for me to stop my pickup, watch, quickly grab my phone and shoot photos and a ten second movie (didn't show) one photo caught a blurry image. Very clear dark sky on our ranch with no ambient city light.
Terminal flash
ObservationNo
Remarks-
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksIt did dissipate some as it reached the horizon to the northeast but I watched it disappear over the hills still trailing spark-like light traveling in a straight almost horizontal path midway in the sky.
