Remarks The fireball brightened as it crossed the sky and grew larger, but did not explode as such - no final flash. At the end it broke into at least 3 pieces and then it faded out rapidly. What I noticed most was how large it was - several time larger than a standard meteor shower "falling star", and how FAST it was moving across the sky. It was fast.
