Description
I spotted this on 12-09 @ 5:44pm, west of Rome Ga Agonizing over a site to view it, I was delayed for a few minutes. At first view it was very distinct, 5 min later was totally gone. You can see 6 dark streaks at ground level in line with the train which I think are debris strikes. In the largest shot, the front shows streaks that looks like debris ejection. I assume this was a Geminids but may have just been a stray. It appeared to explode over the Alabama line, I called a friend to see if he heard a sonic boom but he did not.
