RemarksIt appeared to be a band of light, at least twice as wide Jupiter traveling in a northerly direction, almost ghost like and I could see what appeared to be debris within the band, or it was stars on the other side of it. It appeared different to the eye than what I got in the photos. I believe it was a fireball disintegrating at a very high altitude because of the time it was visible. I have two photos of it. The first one the object entered the field of view at the end of a 20 second exposure, then appears fainter and farther away in the second photo.
