Long Green tail with a orange fireball moved across the sky from south to north in the eastern sky. Tail disapated, but the orange fireball continued in a northly direction. Fireball was engulfed in white smoke as it continued in a north downward direction. Note: looked to have left a black streak in the sky. Seemed to move very slowly. Took about 1 to 2 min from time witnessed, lost as it went behind a set of trees. It defentely did not come down close to my location.
