Reports Report 1436h (Event 1436-2017)

Name Alex C
Experience Level 4/5
Remarks The information I have provided is as accurate as my phone and your devices/image placers will allow. The object appeared as a thin scar of whitish light thereafter gaining in intensity as it dropped becoming a splitting (in a straight line) burst of yellow/white light. It appeared at its end as bright as the ISS but much bigger in size by about 8or 9 times the size. It came and went very rapidly and quite spectacularly. I'm wondering if it impacted anything or anyone but judging by the fact that BBC Nottingham has had no reports I'm guessing it missed any life and/or structures. Probably fragmented sufficiently enough as not to cause any actual damage.
