Remarks There was a glowing fireball in the sky which then broke into multiple pieces before it stopped glowing. It looked similar to a firework going off, except it exploded in 1 direction rather than all directions. The camera quality isn't super amazing, so you can't see the individual pieces in the video, but they were definitely visible with the naked eye.
