RemarksI'm was looking NNE and me and another guy from my work saw this fireball just as it fell behind the huge gasoline storage tanks (50ft high). It looked big and far away but seemed to crash just North of us. Like Troy, NY north of us, because there was a flash, like an electrical transformer explosion, but I could see the flash reflecting off the trees on the horizon from my view. When we saw it it was in a complete downward trajectory and zoom, it was gone.
Fragmentation
