Remarks We were driving west on a highway with an open sky above. The sky was clear and the moon is nearly full. The object was a flaming ball with a fiery tail that shot across the open sky seeming almost like a plane that was crashing. It seemed so close but then it burned from the inside out, the front end first, then it burnt out entirely before crashing to earth which I was just sure was about to happen.
Fragmentation
Observation No
