Location: Nashville, TN
Shape: Fireball
Duration:1 second
Object fell from sky vertically leaving trail of sparks behind it -- changed from green to yellow-white as it entered atmosphere.

While driving home I saw what at first I thought might be a shooting star glittering down from the heavens. Upon reflection, I thought it might be falling 'space junk.' The object was 45 degrees above the horizon, just above the treetops. The trail, from my perspective was a bit longer and closer to earth than the standard shooting stars I've seen. The object entered green/orange and turned yellow-white. The trail disintegrated/disappeared as quickly as it appeared. It was in the southern sky.
