bright green and red fast moving light

I was standing in my living room looking out my front window at the cars going by. It was just after sunset but there was still light in the sky, most of the cars had not yet turned on their headlights. Across the street over the woods I saw a bright green light moving very quickly across the sky at a downward angle of about 30 degrees. It had an equally bright red trail or light behind it. It seemed to appear out of nowhere and disappeared when it went behind a low cloud. My first thought was that it was a shooting star but I ruled it out immediately as it was still light enough out not to see any stars and the color was a very distinct green followed by red. Also it was larger than any shooting star I have seen. I had just got off the phone with a friend when it happened and called back right away as I thought I might forget the details of it if I did not tell anyone. It happened very quickly. I could not judge the distance but it seemed far.
