Large green fireball seen falling from sky over Fort Washington, Maryland.

Driving north from Accokeek, Maryland to Fort Washington, Maryland, on Route 210, Indian Head Highway, I approached Old Fort Road when I saw what appeared to be a large green brightly lit object moving with a very wide tail that tapered off in the sky. It fell to earth ahead of me. It appeared to land near Oxon Hill, Maryland.
