RemarksIt was (to me) a huge brilliant explosion of light, with a white trail that flashed across the dark sky (sun was not up yet). I would have thought a plane exploded, except I recalled reading that The Skull comet/asteroid was expected Oct 31. However, someone told me since my sighting that I would not have been able to see TB145. So I don't know what I saw. But, again, it was HUGE!
Fragmentation
ObservationUnknown
