Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksI did not see a terminal flash but it was a flash (or sound, I don't know) that woke me from a deep sleep. I looked out the window and it was bright white (I thought snow) turned my head, checked the other window and saw the fireball. This is the second one I have seen, last one was last year in Danbury at 1710 and started with a small dull one that died quickly and followed by a much brighter larger one.
