This report has been linked to the following event: Event 2519-2021
Observer
NameChristopher G
Experience Level4/5
RemarksIt was so fast and bright that I initially couldn't tell how distant it was - my first thought was that it was an illuminating flare or something (though there would have been no reason for anyone to shoot off one of those around the perimeter highway of Atlanta) until I saw it dim and break up. I can't 100% rule out that I might've been incorrect in thinking it was a fireball but I can't think of what else it could've been!

Terminal flash
ObservationYes

Fragmentation
ObservationYes
RemarksAfter what may have been a terminal flash, the object rapidly faded, leaving at least 3-5 fragments and a slight glow behind it.
