large meteor like object surrounded by bright green light

Object somewhat larger than a shooting star. In path and duration it was similar to a shooting star, and seemingly disappeared in mid-sky. There was not cloud cover sufficient to obscure an object this bright, nor were there mountains to block it. The object was surrounded or followed by bright green light; both the light and the object disappeared at the same time.
