Experience Level1/5
RemarksI was traveling east on Dulles Toll Road and it appeared to the southeast. Was a bright streak that terminated in a bright fireball. Appeared to be greenish tint but this may have been tinting on windshield since I observed it while driving. But it did seem to be below the windshield tint. Only lasted ~1.5s.
