Fireball Breaks Up Near Delmont, PA-January 17, 2015

 

On the evening of January 17, 2015, a family traveling on Route 66, about 5 miles north of Delmont, observed something in the sky that drew their attention. They noticed a bright white fireball moving fast across the sky. The fireball then broke up into two or three luminous trails. The entire observation lasted about 5 seconds and no sound was heard. If you saw this fireball, please let me know. Details suggest a meteor or possibly re-entering space debris. No major meteor event has been reported.
