Streaking, glowing object bursts into bright green fireball and disappears

My sons and I were setting up our telescope on the porch because it was a very clear night for star viewing when we saw a very bright white object streak downward across the sky at a steep angle, change to an orange red color and then explode into a bright green fireball that disappeared within one second. We both exclaimed our surprise and the whole family turned to see what we saw but there was nothing left to see.


Sighting is consistent with what one would expect for a meteor. PD
