I saw an amazing bright flouescent green fireball fall to the earth from the south on a clear night that took only seconds.

I was in conversation,looked up saw a bright bright flouescent green ball with a glow around it falling to the ground.It had a slight"ark"behind it.The size of this ball was about the size of half to three quarters of a full moon.The appearance was like a bright green fireball.I was standing facing south,the sky was very clear with the stars visiable.This ball disappeared behind trees as it fell to the earth.What stands out in my mind was the the large size and remarkable color of this object.There was total silence this evening.It was an amazing sight!There where two airplanes in the vicinity at the time.
