While driving down the interstate heading home towards Cascade the bright light in the sky to my right hand side definitely caught my eye this was one of the longest and brightest fireballs I have gotten to witness in my lifetime. For this reasoning I was intrigued to see how many other people witnessed it and discovered this website of astronomical viewing events. The fragmentation as it entered the atmosphere was amazingly clear and getting to see such a site was pretty cool.

Svjetlina i boja
Light yellow faded to bright red then just black
The train got wider and brighter as the fire ball came closer to the horizon.
When the fire ball was at it’s brightest before it disappeared there was a bright flash of red and wide fragmentation that spread outward as it disappeared. You could definitely see the explosion of pieces behind the fireball.
The fragmentation itself, was hundreds of little red dots almost like a firework going off behind the fireball it was bright red and flashy in color.
