It was amazing. Biggest fastest light in the sky I've ever seen. Exploded into a ton of pieces. Was amazing wow. With a fiery blue trail of debris. Brilliant!

From oroville California: I looked up at the sky and what I saw was three large fluorescent green orbs in an equilateral triangle form with one tip guiding its direction and in a dart across the sky it lead to a burst projecting into a ray of orbs with larger brighter orbs leading the trail into smaller dulling orbs then vanished
