RemarksI was driving home from work I work nights. I thought it was a bright star at first. I keep looking at it and it got brighter and bigger. All the sudden it bolted leaving a bright trail. That when I could see smoke around the brightness. It all disappeared within a few seconds. It was breathtaking happy to witness it.
