Large, glowing, bright green "fireball" falling fast south of Los Angeles.

I saw a bright green "fireball" fall very fast somewhere due south of Los Angeles. I saw it while I was outside running laps on the high school track, so I got a very clear view of it. I describe it as a fireball for lack of a better word, but really it wasn't because I've seen bolides before and they look much different in both color and it the expulsion of material. This was more like a very bright, very large flare because of its glowing nature, but it was falling way too fast to be a flare. It was quite beautiful actually.
