Location: Palm Springs, CA
Shape: Fireball
Duration:3-8 minutes
Fireball or meteor breaking up over Palm Springs.

I was in the car and I saw what looked like a meteor burning up and breaking up over the Palm Springs Airport. It burned for at least 3 minutes, then broke up into a few pieces. Those pieces disappeared for about 1 minute, then reappeared further away. About 1 minute after that, the entire thing disappeared. The trail changed colors, as if it was burning different gases or something.
