A bright light that was heading towards the ground and just disappeared

We were traveling south on the Florida Turnpike when at the Fort Pierce exit there was a stream of bright light heading towards the ground about 200 feet to the southwest of our car. The bright white light turned bright green about 100 feet from the ground. I was waiting for a plane to crash right in front of us - the light was so bright and close and fast. Then.....NOTHING!!! We thought our eyes were playing tricks on us - but we both saw the same thing.
