BemerkungenI am a professional planetary scientist; but one whom has spent the last few years in very light polluted areas, so I'm a little out of practice on my amateur observing skills.This meteor appeared from my location to pass from below the direction of the constellation Leo, toward the lower part (the "feet") of the constellation Gemini.It remained steadily bright for a very long portion of the track, before varying a bit in brightness as the fragmentation occurred.I did not see any discernible train afterwards, which surprised me, given that I've seen very long-live trains with meteors less bright than this.I may have underestimated the brightness, as I had no useful comparison object in the sky or nearby. It was easily brighter than Venus, and was bright enough to produce a weak corona from scattering in the atmosphere.

BemerkungenNear the terminus of the meteor path, small fragments began to emerge from the main body, which seemed to remain intact and on course.
