It looked like a glowing ball with a green very bright glow around it. The ball left a stream of green light (like a tail) behind it but I don't recall if it was still there after it dissipated. It was truly a beautiful sight to see. It almost looked like someone had let off a very large firework from their back yard. Something i have never seen before. I am surprised that it was so close to the ground, like a low flying airplane.
