Remarks Skinny, then wide trail of green with fragments and streaks or organs and yellow. Could see a shock like shape in the color and light at the head of the streak. Have never seen fragments before. It was the the point where I though it was a firework and but quickly new that it moved way to fast and last way too short to be a firework. Also did not appear as close but close enough I couldn't help but listen for a shock. But one didn't come. Then again D.C. has a lot of noise pollution so maybe it was faint and died out below background sound of planes etc
Terminal flash
