Bright greenish orb with reddish tail fell at 45 degree angle over West San Jose.

We were driving South on 880 (Nimitz Freeway) and we saw a large bright greenish circle with a tail--sort of tear-drop shaped-- with a bright reddish back edge falling at a 45 degree angle from left to right towards the ground in West San Jose. We were South of the San Jose Airport's usual landing pattern and this object appeared to fall/descend too quickly to be a safe conventional aircraft landing.
