Additional sighting of "Greenish" ball of light.

While listening to the Art Bell radio show and hearing about the sightings, I walked outside of the building where I work and started looking around. I was facing at 310 degrees (compass heading) and looking up at what I think was the Big Dipper. To the left of the "handle" of the Big Dipper, at about a 45 degree angle from the horizon, a ball of white light with a greenish glow arround the circumfrence; looked as if it dropped straight down. The light lasted about 2 full seconds. I'm not sure if there was a "tail" or just the image of the bright light on my retina. I would approximate the size of the ball of light as about 5 to 10 times the size of the dot of light of Jupiter which was in the sky behind me.
