Nice fireball breaking apart in the East

Anyone else in the US see that fireball that just crashing down? Looked like it came about through Cetus. So started about SSE and finished just shy of due East and just about my horizon. Lasted about a good 4-5 seconds. Saw it clearly break up into at least 5 pieces. Was mostly the bright yellow/orange color with a small flash of green just as it was breaking up. Was a real treat to start a beautifully clear night of imaging.

Oh and I'm located at about N40 degrees 40' and W 89 degrees 33' and was almost exactly at 7:30PM CST. Which is about 3 hours south of Chicago, Illinois, USA
