|Green Fireball with yellow-orange tail.
Green Fireball with yellow-orange tail observed in the soutern sky traveling at a high rate of speed from west to east. Observed object for about a 10 second period. Was traveling in a flat trajectory ahd went over the horizon to the east. Was very large (thumbnail at arms length) and the head was brighter than the moon. I would guess it was either a large meteor or a piece of space junk re-entering.
