Blue/green spherical craft seen from Ventura Freeway in Encino, CA

While traveling west on the Ventura Freeway in the city of Encino, a bright blue/green light caught my eye. I watched it for a few seconds and pointed it out to my husband who was sitting next to me (he was the passenger, I was the driver) and he saw it immediately. This round shaped object traveled faster than any plane, but slower than a meteorite, was not a plane or helicopter. We watched it fly westwards towards the Malibu area in an arc, and vanish in the sky. Immediately afterwards, I saw two helicopters flying, coming from the southwest to north flashing their lights. The helicopters were lower and closer than the craft we saw. I had the feeling these helicopters had seen the object and were trying to find it, can't say why I had the feeling - just did.
