Fireball, green with white center, with a tail of white sparkling stuff. It went horozontally across sky, winked out.

A friend and I were in central Austin, just at dusk,headed weston the feeder of a major highway. We looked up, saw this fireball appear about 30 degrees above the horizon, a greenish fireball with a hot white cen- ter. it had a tail of sparkling white stuff trailing behind it. It zoomed silently for about 10 seconds, more or less level with the hori- zon, then just winked out. I have seen these several times, as had my friend.
