Concurrent Sound
ObservationYes
Remarksit sounded like lighting going through the sky but it lasted longer then a lighting strike
Delayed Sound

Remarksit started out sounding like lighting but as it was about to go over the mountain it sounded like a low flying jet that was going faster then normal and it only lasted a couple seconds
Persistent train
ObservationYes
Duration1s
Length15°
Remarksthe front of the object was darker and i could make out a darker shadow in front of it that had a round front and as it pasted there was a BRIGHT trail behind it that was almost like the color of a welding flash but with a yellow tint to it and it wasnt a straight line behind it. it was kind of jagged, almost like it was turning sharply as it was going over. but the trail was between 1 and 1.5 fist long from the front of the object to the tail end
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
Remarksi was bent down in the garden and i noticed a big flash, it was like a very big lighting strike that lit up the field. as that happened i instantly looked up to see what was going on and watched it go slightly over my right shoulder and continue until it went over the mountain line
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
Remarksim not sure if the jagged looking line behind it was pieces falling off or what caused it but it could have been pieces that burnt out as it went by
