RemarksIt was very dark. Out still. The sky was black. I droppped my mother off at the front of her work. Before she got out. There was a white flash like a camera flash went off. But everywhere went bright white. I was facing east. looked out my window to the left. And at First thought my mind said fireworks. But it’s was just one white line in the sky and at the bottom tip of it. Was a mostly white with possible orange ball. I’d describe the size of the trail to be two pencil tip thickness at arms length. And the ball would have been six pencil tip thickness. The ball faded above the horizon. As well as the tail. As it faded into the dark sky. It left a mark in the sky that looked grey as it faded to black. Then it was gone
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIt was dark out so everything just flashed white outside. Then I looked left out my window and caught the white line and fireball before it faded
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksI thought it was fireworks for a split second. But realized it was only one white line in the sky with a fireball at the bottom of the fireball appeared to have other colour in it besides white. Possibly orange or like a burning colour. But it alll faded so fast. I can’t be sure if I seen fragments. I just know at first I thought fireworks and I don’t know why.
