Shape: Teardrop
Duration:5 seconds
Staring at sky when a bright green ball is seen S S/W about 187 degrees descending from sky in a falling action, trailing red sparks. May have been space junk? Looked to be size of very large meteor.

Descent was slow: 5 seconds, before obstructed by trees on horizon. No sound. No reports on local community Facebook groups. Very close to small corporate airport. Planes seen in area. Was weirdest thing. Was I the only one?
