Fireball of green/orange seen above SW Montana.

A fireball of orange and green was seen above Bozeman when viewed from 8 miles west of town. object appeared to be travelling in a southeast direction and downward - appeared as a bright rapidly moving fireball against a clear moonlit sky, then the fireball went dark, flames etc appeared to extinguish, and a dark object appeared to continue its descent remaining visible *below the sightline* of Bridger Mtn range in background.

No impact or explosion was seen and no sound heard.

Originally thought it might be an aircraft on fire. Incident reported to me by daughter at school in Bozeman.
