Green sporadic space rock disintegrated in the sky of Brazil on February 2, 2016:

The green-colored fireball was observed passing over three states (MG, RJ and SP) on 02.08.2015 at around 0:26am local time. It was recorded by two Bramon stations (AAC1 in Belo Horizonte and ARA in Rio de Janeiro ).

This was a sporadic meteor of magnitude -4.8 with a duration of 1.5 seconds. Despite the great brightness the meteor fragmented completely at 54km altitude, leaving no meteorites on the ground.

Listen to the noise of the Leonid meteor shower of 2000:

Each time a meteor crosses the atmosphere, it leaves behind a short trail of ionised particles. This trail reflects high-frequency radio signals from stations around the world for just a few seconds.

The motion of the meteor trail due to the upper atmosphere winds changes the frequency of the reflected signal. You ‘hear’ the trail as it is blown around by the winds before it is eventually dispersed.
