checked my phone time at time of sighting = 3:57am, checked phone time when 3 booms were heard = 4:04 am... booms had atmospheric concussion
heavy smoke trails, cork screwing and turning back on itself covering large area, several times larger that White sands missle launch trails seen from Phoenix
Thought I saw a domed shaped flash of light at horizon level shortly after object disappeared (1- 2 seconds) in the general direction of travel. The domed shape flash is where I indicated the last point of observation.
The objects mass did not remain neatly confined. There were some unconfined light streaks trailing closely and behind but I am not confident enough to provide details.
