Remarks I saw the end of it after it entered the atmosphere. I did not see the actual fireball, I saw the fragments that broke off and then it dissipated. It looked like a blue green color, super bright, like it broke apart into 3 pieces. I almost thought it was a weird shooting star, but my friends outside said there was a fireball first. Another friend called me immediately and asked me if I just saw the meteor or fireball come through the atmosphere. He saw it from start to finish. We get worked up over these events!
