Experience Level2/5
RemarksI’m pretty certain and would welcome feedback. I looked up the rare occurrence of meteors in Scotland yet I think this was too intensely white bright travelling very fast , appearing from nowhere and then ending suddenly after maybe one second with slight sparking fragmentation that I cannot reasonably think it can be anything else.Surely some security cameras caught this at 20.38 today ?

Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksI was driving with radio on and did not hear anything. It lasted approximately one second travelling incredibly fast. Intensely white. Travelling across the sky left to right but descending slightly. I think east south east. It appeared from nowhere, travelled fast and then broke up in a flash/with slight fragmentation sparks and immediately disappeared from visibility in a dark sky. It seemed quite close which may be against this being a meteor but it was absolutely fantastic to see. I’ve seen many fireworks over my 60 years. This was not a firework.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksActually not spectacular. Like an ending it flashed slightly at the end of its smooth fast trajectory and I saw what looked like sparks drop briefly then disappear very quickly. So, the “fragmentation” ended the visible intense light from a what seemed a small but incredibly bright object. NB It seemed closer, lower than I would have expected a meteorite to have entered the atmospheres this was close. I will not forget this.
