Large green light traveling at rapid speed across the sky over Philadelphia, PA.

I was driving over the Walt Whitman Bridge heading east and all of a sudden I saw a large bright green light travel across the sky heading north-east. Because I am not positive of the size of the craft, it is difficult to say exactly how high in the sky it was; but I would say it was approximately 15,000 feet up. The craft flew over in a path which seemed parallel to the earth, which lead me to believe that it wasn’t any kind of meteor. This certainly wasn’t a glare either…something traveled across the sky at a significantly rapid speed and then disappeared. Whatever it was, it was very large; the green light shone like a sunburst and was quite larger than any of the other lights seen on nearby aircraft.
