Bright Flashing green light over West San Jose Descends and heads south loops and disappears

I was out smoking a cigar tonight at 9:16 PM and I observed a flashing bright green light rising in the horizon at about 280° west and noticed it was climbing and thought it was an airliner. The light abruptly descended and headed south too fast to be an airliner and did a sharp loop and then disappeared heading away from about 253 degrees West. The light was only visible for 45 seconds. I came back into the house and grabbed my compass to check the headings. I did not hear any noise and it appeared to be at a high altitude. I was the only witness and hope someone else may have seen it.
