Green fireball over Springfield,MO

Mom and I were visiting a family member at the hospital. As we were leaving the parking lot I saw a bright green light flash on my right ( North). The light fell towards the west and vanished below the tree line. I asked Mom if she saw that, and she said yes, she had never seen a green shooting star before. I told Mom I wasn't sure it was a shooting star. We talked about the location of the airport and the speed of what we had seen. I also told Mom I had seen a similar object some days before. I don't know what we saw that night, but I know it wasn't natural.
