Details:
This meteor exploded and lit up the sky just west of Puerto Rico. It also left a large area of ionized debris that most likely lingered for a very long time. The fragment that survived the explosion could have made landfall between Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic.

The sky chart indicates that this meteor was not a Northern Taurid but it did pass very close to the radiant.

It was captured on Nov 3, 2018 at 03:34:57 UTC. I used a Watec 902H camera facing west towards the Mona Passage and Mona Island.
