Green fireball over Renton, WA

I was talking with my girlfriend when I walked outside. I was looking at the stars as I usually do when I thought I saw a "shooting star". It looked more like a probe but was moving alot faster. Its color was almost light neon green. From where I was standing it appeared over my left shoulder and relative to my position on the ground it seemed only about 200 meters up in the air. There was no "bang" like that of fireworks, it did not make a sound at all. I live in Renton and the object was moving east-southeast. I lost it over the trees so I don't know if it vanished or kept on moving in that direction.
