Reports Report 4588ge (Event 4588-2017)

Name Graham G
Experience Level 1/5
Remarks I read Geology at the University of Glasgow but have only a rudimentary knowledge of Astronomy but am always keen to assist other fields. I was a little taken aback by what I witnessed as in my 54 years on this planet I've surprisingly never seen anything like this so I guess they are rare events or maybe I'm just not very observant!

Remarks Extremely bright disintegrated into several components. Never experienced anything like it on my sojourn on the blue marble.
Observation Yes
Remarks As above. Spectacular as it seemed to "explode" into several pieces but I did not hear any sound. It looked close to the naked eye but I guess it is a kind of optical illusion and much further away than one would surmise. I was jogging on the road at the top of a hill heading for Pentewan Beach at the time on a very cold but clear morning. I've been doing this run route for about five years and only seen "shooting stars" twice. This was, however, a completely different beast.
