Big bright GREEN FIREBALL seen burning slowly to the earth in Dunes City, Oregon

For 3 seconds, I saw a big (1/3 size of a full moon) bright green fireball (possibly ball lightning) burning to the ground from left to right at a 10 degree angle from approximately 300 feet elevation just north of the Summerbell Arm of Woahink Lake between Florence and Dunes City, Oregon. It was really beautiful very bright green like it was made out of powerful green laser light and seemed to burn out even drip green "lava" as it burnt out just before or even as it hit the ground. It was NOT a meteor as it was falling much much much too slowly to be a meteor. Google Project Twinkle and Green fireballs and ball lightning.

I wasn't able to capture any image, but it was a really excellent big bright green fireball.

NOTE: This was so close to Woahink Lake that if it was ball lightning, I suspect the warm temperature of the lake water and the cold air temperature may have intensified the sighting. Also, at first I thought I was seeing a big green firework fizzling out, but there was no report or boom from any huge firework it was not a firework.
