RemarksI know nothing about this ... am just a random person who saw it and went online to find out what I saw. So please excuse the nonscientific description -- all I can say is that it looked like a very bright ball leaving behind it bright, sharp sparkles. It may have ended in a flash but I\\\'m not sure. I was too surprised and too ignorant of this to register that kind of detail.
