large neon green ball with greenand white tail shooting across sky

I was lying in bed talking with my boyfriend when I happened to glance outside. When I looked outside I suddenly saw a very large neon green ball shooting across the sky. It looked outside I suddenly saw a very large neon green ball shooting across the sky. It had an extended green and white tail. It was much larger than any meteor I have ever seen and seemed to be about or below cloud level. It was awesome!!! I immediately yelled at my boyfriend "look, look!" but by the time he turned around it was gone, so it only lasted about 3-5 seconds. The window looks out to the north and the object went across the sky from approximately west to east. I am guessing this was a similar object to the sightings that were reported back on January 24th. I am an avid sky watcher and make a point of sky watching during any major predicted event such as meteor showers etc. This was unlike anything I have seen before.
