Reports Report 4911d (Event 4911-2017)

Name Julius S
Experience Level 2/5
Remarks What caught my attention was a bright blue sphere with reddish white outline high in the sky that moved really fast towards the horizon and vanished. In less of a second of that vanishing burning sphere, there it was the long blue trail. As the streak appeared across the sky it had fragmenting smaller glowing spheres. The size of it made me think it was a fire work, it was massive compared to the small dim streaks I see sometimes in the sky if look long enough.
