Remarks This was a stream of hundreds of objects. The head of it was the most dense and had the largest bright spots. At first I thought it was a comet, but it moved fast, covering horizon to horizon in about thirty seconds. There were lesser groups of objects. All followed the same path from SSE to NNW. Very few of the individual objects flared. Clearly, something was breaking up in our atmosphere.
