Large green fireball with sparks trailing behind

I was walking on the golf course next to my mother in law's apartment. At first I was looking straight ahead, but all of the sudden a large green fireball about 50 times the size of a normal star averted my attention to the sky. The object was bright green fire that came to a point at the tail end. It had sparks flailing off of the it as it shot across the sky. I was on the phone with my boyfriend who was delivering pizzas across town and he saw the same thing, and we are at least 30 miles away from each other. His experience was that he saw the fireball separate into four different distinct smaller objects, only to converge seconds later back into one fireball before disappearing. The speed of the object was much faster than a plane, but it lingered in the sky for at least 20 seconds before completely disappearing. There was no sound, and it did not breach the horizon, it simply disappeared! I'm freaked out.
