I only saw a streak no debris, before it went behind a building, was on my way home from a visit.
The flash can be connected to the comet 'the great pumpkin' or NASA's official name in 2015 TB145, on Saturday evening at 19:01 passed Earth at a distance of 486,000 kilometers.
The comet flew with 126.000 km / h or 35 kilometers per second as it roared past.
- Although it is relatively close by astronomical standards, it is expected to be quite weak, so observers will need at least a small telescope to see it, said Paul Chodas of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory earlier today.
