The size and amount of detail me and two other people were able to see was striking and the size of the trail was approximately 3/4” between two fingers of an outstretched hand. It was so close feeling it was very similar to seeing fireworks overhead.

The train started as an uneven wide glowing bright green trail which then became more uneven leaving a wider lump towards the middle of the train which included a swirl of green, red and purple. Then a slight smoke trail remained for possibly .5 seconds.
A green and purple flash which lit up everything around us in those colors and the fireball started as a massive green teardrop with a brighter center teardrop.
It quickly started to break apart and we very clearly saw 4-5 much smaller pieces come off and burn rapidly due to being so close to it overhead.
