Hello. This is my first post here at ATS. My first thought upon reading the eyewitness accounts, and seeing the footage is that these are meteorites. The pulsing of the light emissions seem to indicate an irregular shape that is rotating in one or more axes. Also, the colours (I'm Canadian, that's how we spell that word ) could be indicative of changing temperature as the energy from atmospheric entry is ablated, particularly the red seen near the end of the objects passage. As far as sound goes, I'm a little stumped, as I would think that such an object would make more of a racket on impact. I'm looking forward to seeing more of this event unfold, and I'm also happy to be a part of this community.

"At dusk, while looking out of the west window, someone in the tower saw a bluish-green light moving from east to west -- a meteor, " Herwig said. "And it completely dissipated before making contact with the ground."

Just wanted to note that I live in the Florida Big Bend area and happened to be watching the International Space Station pass over at exactly 6:05 my time... which would make it 5:05 your time I think. It was travelling southwest to northeast.
I commented to my brother how beautiful the pink remnants of the sunset were and wondered if the ISS would be pink also when we first saw it. It was pink like the sunset for about a quater of its pass... then shown white. (-1.3 mag)
Not claiming it's what you saw though.
