DescriptionI 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.
