Large Green Ball(?) of Light Plummeting towards Ground

I stood in neighbor's driveway, and neighbor quickly called my attention to a "falling" green light in the northern sky (the sky between Town of Gaston and towards the CAE Airport).

He saw it seconds before I did, and to him it was above the plane headind straight down. I saw it as it looked almost level with the plane. To me there seemed to be a slight curving trajectory, but I believe that was an illusory affeft due to the flight plan of the plane. A treeline on the immediate horizon hid anything further.

The plane was heading in an easterly direction.

I waited to hear sounds or see lights of impact, but none came. There were no sounds during flight, and the light was not hazy or changing, nor did it flicker. I do not know if it landed or impacted the ground.

Notice: Due to distance, the descriptions of relative position are biased in perspective. I cannot fully say that the light and plane were close at all, or even truly crossed paths. Non-converging paths can seem convergant from such a perspective over distance. I could not distinguish any 3D spatial relationship, only as a 2D p.o.v.
