Observed a light behind a tree that was bright white, then it took off and as it did, it turned brillaint green

I was walkng outside when I noticed a REALLY bright "star" behind a tree in our front yard... when I looked at it for a moment, it shot off and turned a briallant Blue-Green, it shot off towards the mountain and disapeared right before it got there. I believe that our Long/Latt is this 37W,120N (I THINK!) We are about 15 miles directly south-west of Yosemite Nat'l Park in California thanks.
