Bolide Sighting Over Highway 22 Between Trail And Castlegar British Columbia

Date: October 1, 2010
Time: 9:31 p.m.

Hello, my name is (name removed and personal information removed) At approximately 21:31hrs October 1, 2010 I was traveling north on highway 22 between Trail and Castlegar at 49.08'36.81"N 117.44'20.85"W. I observed a bolide overhead that tracked from my six and appeared to break into at least two pieces.

One large and one smaller trailing piece that disappeared first. Using Google Earth today I estimate the track to be almost a perfect, 0 degree, South to North directional. It appeared to be 10-15 east of zenith to my O.P. and disintegrated or became unobservable at approximately 45 degrees horizon.
