Green ball with a pink/red tail entering our atmosphere , then flying of over the horizon.

Me and my friend were driving on this dark mountain road by our house when all of the sudden we saw a glowing,bright green ball, with a reddish/pink tail come down like it was entering our atmosphere.The ball began to shoot of (in our atmosphere)over the hills about 20-30 miles away, it was almost as if it was circling our atmosphere to check it out.The object came in pretty slow then very quickly left.i cant really explain what it was when i saw it i wasn't sure if my friend did or not but his and my reaction answered that question.I used to not believe in life out there, now i sure do! ( unfortunately i had no camera at hand )
