Bright Light/Metor

I was at the Eugene Airport and was facing north at about 21:06 in the evening when I saw a very bright white object in the sky. At first I thought it was an airplane landing light but it was far too bright. The Object was about a quarter the size of the full moon. It appeared at about 45 degrees above the horizon and disappeared at about 10 degrees above the horizon. When I first saw it it looked like the tail was comming from the front end of it and then it formed into a ball then it formed a tail out of the back end like a normal metor. This all took place in just a few seconds. The object was a very very bright white. It looked like it was going toward the Northwest, it looked like it was about 10 degrees West of due North. I heard a caller on Art Bell's show describe the object as green but he also said that was through his visor, I am assuming this was the same object I saw. The object appeared to me as if it punched throught the atmosphere or something, thats why I saw the tail at the front first then turn to a ball then form a tail out the back.
