Large green fireball

On Dec. 1st, 2008 at 12:13 I was driving east on GA Route 316 towards Athens, GA. An enormous green and orange fire ball entered the sky right in front of me. It appeared to be traveling down towards the earth. The object burned much longer than any meteor that I have ever seen. The fireball was orange in the middle, burned with a green glow, and had a long green tail. After falling and burning for several seconds, there was a large green flash then it was gone.
