I saw a very bright green ball fall from the sky , then disappear over the horizen.

This morning at about 6:45AM, I was driving southeast on Bueneventura Blv.. I was noticeing how beautiful the sunrise was, as it was just getting light over the horizen in front of me. Then I saw a very bright green ball shaped object fall from the sky, disappearing over the horizen. This seemed to occur just as the sun was coming up. The sky was just beginning to lighten up pink in color and I could also see the horizen of mountains, however the sky was still dark behind me. There were a few clouds above me, but none where I saw this object. This object was a very bright florescent green. I'm not sure how far away it was, but the mountains it fell behind are at least 60 or 70 miles away. It was about twice the size of the "lit" part of a streetlight. It didn't appear to have a tail.
