Tonight at work I noticed a meteor flying through the sky. When it first entered the atmosphere it was reddish orange streak (obviously burning up in the atmosphere), it went for about a full second then blew up like a radiating fireworks display. When it exploded, the color was a bright forest green. I quickly made a wish, then wondered what it could be made of to explode with a green color like that? Does anyone know what element that meteor must have contained to "blow up green"?

Copper I suspect may burn with a green flame, or maybe that was aluminium, I can't do a comprehensive search for it right now cos I'm at work. That's my best guess though, hopefully one of the other forumers can answer the question properly.

Na, Copper burns with a more blue/green flame. Barrium on the other hand will produce a nice green
Really depends on what kind of green you, was it bright, dull, any other colours in it?

it was definetly bright. It was like a deep forest green, I guess. It was the color of those "darker" green christmas lights, kind of... I don't know what else to compare it to, to better describe it. I have seen quite a few meteors burn up and/or explode, but never with a green color before. It was very nice...
