Comet-like fireball with Red & Green lights seen in Coachella Valley, CA

I was on my back porch (facing south) and saw what looked like a shooting star falling from the sky. It lasted approximately 5 seconds. It seemed to burn out toward then end, then all I saw was a blinking craft. It turned the oppsoite direction and lit up again. It was a bright light with a long flaming tail. It kept moving in all directions randomly and sometimes it would "burn out" to a dim blinking (like a normal airplane). After it continued for over a minute I called my 4 year old daughter to come see. She thought it was fireworks. We watched and the "tail sparks" turned into circular lights and glowed red at times and green. At some point it looked like it was heading straight for the ground then it would curve up and the tail would light up like a tail of a meteor. It continued for 5 minutes or more. I kept telling my daughter to go get her grandma, she has to see this. It kept changing directions and would glow red then white/yellow and then green. I ran inside finally and grabbed my camera. I was able to capture 3 short video feeds and one still picture. I am convinced there must be some kind of explination for what we saw, I just haven't been able to find anything in our local news. Maybe someone else saw it too.
