Length
RemarksThe burning tail was orangish in color and there a was a slight smoke trail that lingered only about a second after as the tail was burning and moving.
Terminal flash
ObservationYes
RemarksAs it got closer, or lower in altitude it started to break up and the color of the "head" went from a very obvious green color to brighter orange-yellow and pieces started to break away, also glowing and falling off more straight towards the ground. Just before it went out, or out of sight the color intensified and then there was a very quick flash as it got as the color turned more white and it went out. By then it was, or seemed to be, very close to the ground. I was surprised how close it got to the ground while it was still burning. I wouldn't be surprised if something actually hit the ground. This was one of the biggest meteorites I've seen that was still burning when it was very close to the ground. Or it seemed to be close the ground. It would have been nice to be up higher and see it from a more downward viewing angle.
Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksSorry, I described the tail above. But as it got closer to the ground, or lower in the sky, it was easy to see pieces breaking off and falling more towards the ground as it moved westward. They burnt orange like the tail not green like the head. There was also a slight smoke or other vapor left from the falling fragments.
