ObservationYes
RemarksThe streak brightened along its short arc, terminated in a distinct bright blob-like flash, which was visible only for a moment. I did not perceive any fragmentation. The sky was dark, I saw only white, heard nothing. This was in New York City, not far from a major highway, and there is always some traffic noise.
