A meteoroid's elemental composition can be determined by the color it exhibits while burning in the earth's atmosphere which we also call a "meteor". However, is it possible that a meteor streak can exhibit more than 1 color as seen in the attached image? (Image Credits to respective owner)

Are the blue, pinkish-red, cyan, and green colors denoting different elemental compositions of the meteoroid or is it because of the camera lens that clicked this meteor streak in long-exposure?
