Green-Blue comet-like fireball flies over I-88

I saw a blue-green comet-like fireball while I was driving from DeKalb toward Aurora on I-88. I believe it was either a meteor fire ball or a large bottle rocket, but I'm not sure. There were 2 firework shows nearby, one near Kaneville and near St. Charles.

The fireball doesn't look like any firework I've ever seen and it was moving toward Kaneville, not away, so probably not from that firework show. The fireball was red-orange inside, like a flame and moved from North East to South West.

My mom was in the car with me but did not see it since she was looking a different direction.
