It's not a meteor.
This meteor needs to be immediately found and eval uated. Fragmentation I witnessed, was BIG debris of red color. This debris did not dissipate immediately, yet fell WITH the meteor and continued to fall in the same direction. The front of the meteor flashed twice, lasting about 2 seconds. This meteor needs to be immediately found and evaluated. This meteor, or this object, was going moderately slow. It came down at an angel. The front of the meteor was a neon green with a surrounding color of blue. It looked as if something was breaking off the sides of the top, because it was sparking red. VERY big red debris. I have never seen anything like this in my 7+ years of observing the sky. Nothing.
The train was a very bright white and sparking out ward tremendously. The train started off about 30 degrees and over the 8-10 seconds of viewing it, the comet diminished to no trail. During this time it turned from a bright white to a light green. Toward the end of the viewing it turned completely light green, the train stopped, and soon was out of view.
