A shooting star leaving a trail of smoke? This just now 5:54pm 23rd August 2019

A shooting star leaving a trail of smoke? This just now 5:54pm. I never saw it but someone with me did - this just after sunset in twilight.

It was green blue at the end but heading west to southwest direction. We are located western Sydney at Oakville near Windsor. The angle above horizon was about 70 to 80 degrees above horizon

    How long was it roughly? Could be a meteor, looks similar to a meteor train being blown about by high alt winds.

    and to be 100% certain, this was NOT an aircraft, this was a definite meteor? Only lasting a second or so.

    I’ve see meteors at high azimuth so bright, that they’ve they cast shadows and leave debris trails. Meteors can do that and so can space junk.

    Remember the 1 in Russia a few years back? Produced 1 hell of a cloud trail and a loud sonic boom.
