Green flaming ball streaking from north to south with tail behind

While driving along in my car I saw a burning ball, greenish in color, streaking across the sky from north to south. It appeared for approximately 3 seconds. At first I thought it was some sort of firework, but, it was too large and it did not burst as most fireworks do. It had a tail that made it appear as one would think a comet would appear, but then it went out of view.
