At 3:00AM May 22nd from a viewing point in Shell Beach, California: An apparent burning object was rushing through the sky at a tremendous pace. The color was orange and gold.

The course of the object was Westward from over the Pacific Ocean toward the inland and it was a couple hundred feet long. The object rose in altitude at a very fast pace and began to break apart in the sky. Parts of the object looking like glowing embers dropped off as it continued its ascent.

Many “embers” dropped off in a minute long period as the main object shrank and reduced to barely visual.
