Emerald green fireball, descending vertically downward in the eastern horizon. The size of the fireball was about the width of my thumb held out at arms length. There was a small tail with 'sparklers' eminating from it. What caught my attention was its emerald color. I've seen hundreds of meteors but never one quite this big and of this color.
