Single green fireball type object, hitting the ground north of Napa, CA.

My wife and I were out for an evening drive, and were headed north down Hwy. 29. Between Napa and Yountville i noticed something in my perhiperal vision (slightly to the left). When I turned to look I saw a massive green fireball headed down towards the ground. It approached the ground at about a 75 degree angle. I would compare the size of the object from about one quarter, to one half the size of the moon. Just before hitting the ground, the object apparently burned out. Distance was approx from .5 to 1 mile away. We called 911 and notified the Sheriff's Dept, told them we had seen an object fall from the sky, but that there was no explosion or impact from what we could tell. The easiest thing I can compare it to would be anti-aircraft fire, when seen from night vision. You know the white/green streaks?
