Thought it was a shooting star but it kept getting larger then stopped and disappeared

Last night I was driving through New Mexico and I was on highway 40 heading west at approximately the 93 mile marker, it was between 405 and 410am central time so I don't know if they were an hour or two hours behind us time wise.

Anyway, I seen what I thought was a shooting star so at first it was like cool, then I watched it thinking what should I wish for and realized it kept getting bigger the closer it got and thought that's strange. Then I stared at it and noticed that it was greenish and had a red trail behind it then it just stopped and now was green with a red trail but it was not shaped like a star... it kinda looked like a visor on top then a straight line to a diamond shape middle with a straight line below it then IT JUST DISAPPEARED. Seriously, it was falling like a shooting star at first then just stopped in mid air for a couple of seconds and that was it, lights out... it was gone and the sky was dark again.

I'm not saying it was a flying saucer or anything but I do know it was not a shooting star ... don't know what it was but I definately say something.
