driving sw saw diffuse (sheet not bolt) lightning (clear sky) then looked to left (east) and saw rather large fireball meteor breaking up. it was moving roughly south to north. the fireball was somewhat normal looking but the preceding lightning flash was unusual. i am an amatuer astronomer and have seen many meteors/fireballs. this is just to augment the central arkansas event of the same night.
