Brilliant Green Fireball moves slowly from high in the SE to low in the SW

I have often heard you talk about brilliant green flashes of light seen in the sky. Tonight I saw mine! at 8:13pm Pacific... it moved for about 4 seconds from high in the south east to low in the southwest... I'm in Palm Springs looking out my office window facing south... Very big... about half the size of a full moon... or just hold you thumb out in front of you... it was at least as big as your thumbnail. Brilliant lime green color... breaking apart as it moved across and down... leaving little miniature versions of itself in it's wake turning yellow then red and orange. The tail was long... about the length of your index finger stretched out in front of you. I watched it disappear behind the Horizon to the west... which here in Palm Springs is the San Jacinto Mountains... to the west. Very spectacular... thought you might want to compare with other sightings.
