Large falling green ball of light

While driving on my way home, my wife and I both saw a large, green, v-shaped light directly ahead of us (which would be west). It seemed to be very close and very bright. It looked like a single firework but it was falling down. It also was close to an Air Force Base. We are very curious as to what we saw. It didn't appear to be a craft. It looked more like a falling star, but much more colorful, closer and more bright. I believe I saw a tail on the object but my wife doesn't remember seeing one. Please help!
