Object looks as if on fire and crashing, then flies back into the sky, glowing orange and green.

My boyfriend relies on me to take him to work every night at 8:00 p.m. We got in the car tonight and started heading down the road. He had a headache, so he was leaned back in the passenger’s seat with his eyes closed. I happened to look up and saw what appeared to be a moving star. At first, I thought it was a satellite or something, so I didn’t think much about it, except that it looked rather large. But, as I kept looking at it, I noticed that it started to spark orange, as if it were on fire. It looked like an airplane had caught on fire and was crashing.

I hit my boyfriend on the shoulder to get his attention and told him to look, pointing at the object. He wasn’t all that focused because of his headache, so he didn’t look and just leaned back into the seat again. I kept my eyes focused on the object the entire time.

Suddenly, it started going back up into the sky, and I saw not only orange lights now, but green as well. I hit my boyfriend again, and told him to look, but by the time he did look, a line of trees had covered the object.

I came home and explained it to my mom and dad, but they said they had no idea what it was.
