RemarksGlowing train. At first I thought it was a jet leaving a trail, but then I realized the trail didn't stay and turn cloudy. The trail was with the fireball. The fireball lit up for a second or two, was dim,, super bright, then medium bright, then it was out but the glowing trail kept going. The trail is what I saw the entire time but it only followed that path. Nothing was left behind from it. It was an amazing sight- my husband saw it too.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksIt was suddenly a ball and became bright and suddenly disappeared. Its trail stayed the whole time though.
