I happened to just get on the freeway and there were other cars ahead of me but not a lot of traffic. I could tell that some drivers ahead of me also saw it since they seemed to slow down - since I had just gotten on the freeway, I was not going too fast. It caught the peripheral vision of my left eye and I quickly focused both eyes on it and was at first amazed then realized it was a meteor. I seemed to detect that the tail - prior to the ball lighting up - seemed to wave a bit as if it were a flame which made me realize it was a meteor and not an aircraft or something else. It started out as a green color (when I also observed the tail waving a bit like a flame), then moved into the different color stages I indicated. It was beautiful and I felt fortunate to witness this. This is my second fire ball sighting. I saw one several years ago during the summer months while walking my dog which I also reported on this sight. At that time, I clearly saw the yellow and orange flames of the tail waving as it flew and it seemed that I could even hear it fly by. With this sighting, since i was in my car, there was no way to tell if there was a sound. Thank you for making it easy to making a sighting report.
