A bright green glowing sphere, almost teardrop shaped that fell extremely fast and disappeared,

My best friend and I were taking driving that night on a fairly big highway a few miles west of the airport, facing east (towards the airport).

We were talking, gossiping, and I stopped midsentence as I saw it. It looked bigger than the stars, a little ways above the tree line. It appeared and disappeared quickly. It was a bright green glowing ball that seemed to fall extremely fast and disapper, but it was a big ball, and appeared in the night sky out of nowhere.

I looked at my friend, who was driving, and facing the same way. She looked shocked and said "did you see that?!" "The light?" I asked her. "That green light!" We both saw the exact same thing. A bright green glowing ball that went ....Whooooooop down fast with a quick stream down of a green glow.

I've seen flares, lived less than 5 miles from a military base where I heard and seen a lot of loud and unusual things, but I know this was no flare.

Even though it seemed to be around the airport, we didn't see any airplanes in the air at the moment.
