Bright green glowing sphere over wetlands. Oakdale, Long Island, NY

Watching television (Seth Meyers Late Night Show) in living room on couch beside shadeless window which overlooks open wetlands. +/- 00:40AM, a bright light green colored glowing sphere about the size of a basketball from my point of view became visible approximately 50' above the ground, perhaps 200' away, instantly appearing against a dark sky.

The object descended rapidly below treetop level within a group of trees to approximately 20', made a 90-degree turn and sped off in a southerly direction showing a slight bright white haze on the trailing hemispherical north-facing side, but after perhaps 200' of perfect horizontal travel, the object disappeared or went dark itself. There was no associated noise as would be heard with a drone. It was silent. I ran outside, but no sounds could be heard, no object could be seen. No aircraft in the area at the time. Incredible experience. I wish I had my camera on hand. This is all the information that I can r! ecall.
