Green fireball to the North

Sitting on the back porch smoking a cigarette, something caught my attention out of the corner of my eye. I turned to view what I initially thought was a firework, but I was struck by the fact that it was moving diagonally (from right to left) down.

Unlike a shooting star that streaks across the sky, this appeared to be a green fireball whose movement was more deliberate and the intensity of the light fluctuated.

Full disclosure.

The object was not above the tree line, so I was viewing through a small cluster of trees and didn’t get as good a view of it as I would have liked.
