Large shooting star over eastern sky

While leaving a Christmas party (where neither I or my husband consumed alcohol), I looked to the eastern skyline and saw a shooting star larger than I have ever seen in my life. It loked as if it had perhaps entered the atmosphere. The head was colorful, purple and green. The tail was yellowish like a "normal" shooting star. I exclaimed my amazement, and my husband looked up in time to see the tail end of the streak. I came home and checked the news to see if anything had crashed, but apparently not. I love watching meteor showers, but this was like nothing I have ever seen in my life.
