Remarksi was in my car driving on the highway and the fireball came down into my field of view from directly overhead and down towards the horizon right in front of me. we were essentially travelling in the same direction. it was whitish yellowish gold. the streak was very sharp and thin. it looked like a firework going out and fragmented a bit at the end, but it definitely was a fireball.

Remarksas the fireball ended it seemed to fragment at the end as if it just fell apart and fizzled out, rather than exploding fragmentation. there wasn't really a persistant trail but i was in my car and only saw the last part of the fireball.
