RemarksThere is partying going on here at msu I'm standing in my apt looking at the paint in bottom of the window pain. I noticed something odd and then looked up to behold this fireball. This leads me to believe it may have lasted long than 7 seconds. It then broke up into several chunks 3-6 in the same line of direction. Smoke trail became increasing visible during breakup and then faded as the fireballs light vanished after a moment. Dark part of the sky and couldn't see much detail through the screen. Never have I seen one like this. Chunk pieces were close together not large distances apart. There was a fast one compare me to this one I saw 6 months ago ruffly. 192*about southish . That one last 2 seconds, but had a smoke trail 40*++ not as solid or bright as this one though. And duration was long enough for me to stare 4.5-7 seconds.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksLit up smoke trail a lot more
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksBright, but mellow flash. Didn't light up the mountains like daytime. Then smaller mellow bright flashs to a quick fade.
