Bright green object races across the early morning horizon one week after 9/11.

I had gotten off work at 3am, I am a nurse, and was working at a local hospital. When I got home I found I had forgotten to leave a set of keys to the drug cabinet, that were in my pocket. I changed clothes and headed back to the hospital. As I was merging onto I-17 frwy, there were at least 3 to 5 other vehicles in close proximity to mine. When all of a sudden from the north west corner of the sky a bright green circular object quickly passed overhead in front of me headed towards the southeast. Being exactly one week from the 9/11 event, when this object first caught my attention, I thought that maybe it was a missile attack being directed at the city. Apparently, the other drivers that saw it did too, because we all slammed on our brakes. What I thought was strange about this thing was that it's color never changed in intensity, or faded like you might see with a meteor coming through the atmosphere.
