Large green, illuminated light flew right in front of our car, reaching as low as 100 ft.

Early Sunday 9/20/09 at around 12:50 AM, my boyfriend & I were driving down S Frontage Rd in Vernon, CT & began to slow down for the 4 way intersection with Bolton Rd. We were heading back to Boston after visting my hometown for the day. At that time, we saw a white, greenish light moving in front of us at a speed we have never seen in our lives. It began up to our left & was shooting to over to our right. It flew right in front of the car. It was really bright and moving in a downward motion very fast. My boyfriend estimates at least 1,000 mph, I couldn't even guess how fast, in my 26 years it was the fastest thing I've ever seen move by far. It flew over us within a matter of 3 seconds. It probably started at 500 ft high and when we lost sight it was down to 75-100 ft. It looked as though it was going to crash into the woods nearby, but the trees to our right prevented us from seeing anything further. We decided to go straight onto the highway instead of t! aking a right to follow its direction – it was scary. I don’t know how anything moving that fast in a downwards motion could not have possibly crashed. It would have caused major damage, it was probably the size of a car. I kept looking back at the woods to see if something had crashed, but I saw no indication, it was completely dark. It was by far the most unexplainable thing I have ever seen in my life. We didn't hear any noise come from it at all. If it was an aircraft flying that close to our car, you can bet it would have been very loud. For the few seconds I had my eyes glued to it, the best comparison I can think of - remember Homer Simpson's radiation bar that bounced around during the Simpson's intro? It had the similar shape, though we think the UFO was a little rounder. It had a whitish/light green color and a bright illumination like I've never seen. I wish I could find someone else who saw the same thing. With the direction it came in, it flew right over a high! way overpass so I feel like someone else had to have seen it, ! however there were no other cars on the back roads I was traveling, it was a very quiet night out there.
