|horizontal moving bluish green light
I was in parking lot at Midlothian Turnpike and a colored light (one?)I thought was a low flying airplane -caught my eye because the color was a beautiful bluish green and very bright. I noticed it was moving at a steady rate of speed and no other lights and no sound. I then noticed how fast it was moving and yelled at my co-worker to look but it passed very quickly horizontally from west to east at what appeared to be exactly the same altitude.Didn't look like a shooting star-too low , no tail, and the light was a steady rate of speed and much too fast & silent for an aircraft. Wondered if anyone else saw it.
