Since I first discovered these with my narrow field of view experiment I’m now seeing them fairly regularly. This is a short video from the other night with three good examples. The stretch is pretty harsh but the meteor head can be seen to elongate and disintegrate as it ablates. The last of the three takes over two seconds to fully abalate.
