Streak of green light with small head and long tail, like meteror

Observed through windshield of my vehicle while heading north on Meridian towards Hwy. 512 It was bright green and appeared like a meteror streak, but seemed to be much closer, approximately 10-20 miles away. It appeared, from north-east to south-west and disappeared abruptly. I was listening to Art Bell at the time and had just heard about green fier balls and such appearing all around the country. At the exact moment that I heard the guest say that it was important to try and get an exact time of sighting I saw the object in the sky through my windshield. I noted the time on my vehicles digital clock and have since compared it to other clocks. My vehicle clock is one minute slow, so the exact time of my sighting is 10:49 pm on Wednesday, 1998. The object appeared stright ahead of me at about 80 degrees and disappeared to the left at about 50 degrees above the horizion.
