Bright Green Fireball followed by a tail of orange sparks

While taking a smoke break outside at work, just before dawn, I saw what I first thought was a Roman Candle, or some kind of firework, then I realized: 1, it was the wrong time of year; 2, it was too high in the sky and far away. I'v worked nights for 13 years, and have seen many shooting stars, but none like this. It was a Bright Green ball, followed by a trail of orange sparks. It was about softball sized, to the North, falling from West to East. It disapeared behind the building next to me after only a sec or two. The sky was very clear and starry, and although the siting was brief, the image was very clear.
