Location: Minden, NV
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 minute
Two whitiesh-yellow fireballs observed for a full minute or slighly more in western NV.

At approximately 2100 hours, after an extremely hot day, my friend and I were outside enjoying the cooler night air when he shouted, "Look, look" while pointing toward the south-east sky. We watched a whitish-yellow colored, fireball break up into two pieces for approximately 1 full minute. Before the object flew behind the mountains, we observed it break up into several pieces. I have witnessed Perseid fireballs in the past. This object moved much slower. I believe it may have been a large piece of space junk.

I also contacted DCSO on the non-emergency line and was informed that they had taken several reports of the object. ((name deleted))
