I saw this object, which first appeared as a meteorite or “shooting star”, only it was visible for a good few minutes, and didn’t disappear as quickly as one would expect a meteorite to disappear. I was able to capture the phenomenon with my Nikon D3200. I do not have an explanation for the phenomenon to be visible for so long. I have a number of original pictures available taken over a few seconds on my SD card.
