Bright Green, Orange, and White lights

As I write this a very heavy helicoptor is passing over my house. I was driving home on Scholls Ferry Rd. traveling South West (or there abouts as this is a very twisty, winding stretch of road going down the long side of a ridge) wwhen out of no where above and directly in front of me appeared a bright green ball of light desending at a very rapid rate of speed; as if it where falling. It appeared shortly then it disseapered. It did not have a "tail" like most space junk or comets or "falling Stars". It was just this very fast, falling ball of green light. All so in March, In Salem,Or. My Wife and I saw an Orange ball of light approach us from the East. WE watched it for at least two or three minutes before my wife started to call here sister on our cell phone and as she did so the orange light slowly began to change it's corse and began moving toward the south and eventually moved into a bank of clouds. I only report this now as I can't help but notice all of the reports about green, and orange and white lights. This I can not leave out. When my wife and I where married in 1994 in Los Vegas, Nevada we took a side trip to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Unforunatly, because of our time of deparchure and the distance from Utah to the North Rim, It was getting dusk just as we arrived. As we headed back up the long plautue North in the dark pines suddenly a very bright white light pasted us through the trees going in the opposite direction of our travel. There was no sound, and when I looked in the rear veiw mirror I saw nothing but darkness. I looked back; forward just in time to see my wife looking over her left shoulder through the back window of our rental car and then she looked at me breifly. We did not discuss this occurance untill we had returned to Oregon becuase it was so weird but we both remeber it distinctively along with each others unspoken responses.
