Remarks-
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIncredible, it fragmented, like pixels on a screen, like colours dropped in water, swirls, fractals, colours. Not like an object, at speed, breaking up, but like an explosion, in all directions, including back along the way it had traveled. The explosion lasted quarter of a second, if that, but I’ll never forget it.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksLike a classic explosion “debris’ traveled in all directions, but like colours dropped in water, it billowed out, unevenly, thickest in the direction of travel.
