Observer
NameAmber N
Experience Level1/5
RemarksThe fireball lasted a lot longer than most I've seen it was very very bright. At first I thought it was a rocket because you could see an elongated almost cylindrical shape inside the fireball. It was very large, looked close and had an incredibly long no train that was part glowing and part smoke train. It went behind the clouds and was visible maybe 3 seconds later as fragments. The fragments were blue white orange red and broke up even further as the got closer to the surface. Then dissipated to the point where you could no longer see them. Unknown if there was sound because the windows were rolled up. Didn't bother to look back and see if the train was still visible.

Duration20s
Length70°
RemarksMostly glowing train. The glowing train was very long and it was followed by a smokey train. Above train degree length I put as 70 but 70 is not an accurate estimate anyway because I didn't understand how to determine the length with fist/ arm measurement. The train was however very long and I noticed it before I noticed the fireball itself
Terminal flash

Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksWent behind clouds so did not see explosion but could see orange/blue/white/red embers/fragments fall and the fragments color dissipated or became less intense as it got closer to the ground.
