Green comet?

My mom and I were standing out on the back porch and I was looking south. Stars were visible but there were a few wispy clouds here and there. I saw a very brief, bright green, distorted glow in the little bit of clouds that were in the sky that sort of reminded me of the northern lights. It went away after about 1 second. I brought the weird glow up to my mom immediately thereafter and that's when she stood up and faced south when all of the sudden not 5 seconds after the glow, it looked like a bright green comet shot out of the sky. It was traveling extremely fast and was extremely bright. It left a green trail and as it went on the trail became choppy like it was leaving bits of energy behind, but would quickly disappear. I would not be surprised if we weren't the only people that saw this. Anybody driving on the highway nearby would have surely seen it as well!
