Observation Yes
Remarks Split in two; looked a bit like they fizzed out, they split in slightly different directions, looked very red at end then all light was gone. The splitting lasted only about a second, they appeared to drop slightly but they may have just been an illusion as it was travelling so fast
Observation Yes
Remarks I guessed that it split over the Durham dales Pennine hills but could have been much further west?
