Big bright green light falling from the sky in an arc.... then disappearing

My friend and I were driving on Highway 417 at night when we saw an unusual bright green light in the sky. It was much bigger than a plane and brighter than a shooting star. The light was falling from the sky in an arc at an astonishing speed. Then it just disappeared from sight, even though it was a clear night and nothing was blocking our line of vision. What stands out the most is how big it was, its bright colour (green), and how fast it was falling before it disappeared. We reported the sighting to NASA soon after it happened.
