Bright green fireball appears at the end of a burning meteor tail.

I was driving home from work on the Adirondack Northway, heading north. I noticed a very bright orange-colored tail (which looked like it belonged to a meteor) appear in the northwest sky. It was very big, and looked like it was on fire. The tail was pointed directly down and then a very big, bright green ball appeared at the end of the tail. The ball appeared to be on fire as well. The ball and the tail disappeared following a bright flash of light.

I was in the midst of approximately 20 cars, and I could tell they had seen it to because everyone braked at the same time. Some people pulled over to the side of the road. I listened afterwards for a sound, but there was none. I could not tell if there was any sound while it was happening because my windows were up and the radio was on. There was no explosion or shaking afterwards, and I have yet to seen something of this nature since.
