Large blue/green flame/light over Albuquerque, NM.

Large blue/green flame/light over Albuquerque, NM. I was east-bound on the 40 just outside of Albuquerque, when I saw a bright blue/green flame appear in the sky. I figured at first that it was just a meteor, but the object appeared to be getting bigger. It was difficult to discern a definitive shape as I was focused on what appeared to be blue/green flames near the bottom, and I was driving on the busy highway. I would say that it was not a smooth shape based on the flames coming off of it.

I thought whatever it was, was going to crash into a hill that was coming up ahead, but I saw nor felt no impact. An object of that size would have made some sort of projectiles.

I was alone in my car but the highway was fairly busy so I would think that other drivers saw the object, as far as I could tell no one pulled over to have a look. I was tempted to but didn’t pull over either.
