large bright (fluorescent) green ball falling at an angle, no tail, sky brightened as it exploded or crashed behind the tree line

June 4th, 2008 Approximately 1:11 this morning driving between High Springs, Florida and Fort White, Florida on Highway 27 westbound I happened to look out my window SW and at about 60 degrees I saw a huge bright (almost fluorescent) green ball (didn’t notice a tail) falling at about 20 degrees to the South for a little over 1 second when it went behind the tree line, about 20 degrees of sight, and then the sky brightened (not lightning).

I’m not sure if the “meteor?” exploded in air or after it landed.

If I held a quarter at arms length it would be at least that size, but smaller than a golf ball.

Briefly, I thought I could navigate to the site, convinced it dropped nearby considering how close it seemed.

There is a lot of open area and it may have landed in the woods nearby and no one else noticed.
