Reno, NV Green Spherical Luminous Object over Reno

((address deleted)) Blvd. Had just entered 395 highway going south. At the same time I began to notice an object entering my field of view from the left, my friend pointed towards it and said "What is that?". I saw a distinct green circular shape moving at an extremely high speed from the Northeast to a Southwest direction. It appeared the object was descending, but this could have been an illusion. It appeared it was low, approx. 500-1000 ft. (If I held a ruler up in front of my eyes the object would have measured about 1/4" in diameter). There was no sound, like a military jet travelling at high speed might make. I could not be sure if what I was seeing was propulsion from a craft or not. It was dark and I could not see any shape other than the large green circle. I would estimate it traveled at least 4 miles in about 3 seconds as I had a view of the whole Reno valley. It was moving much more rapidly than I would expect an civilian or government aircraft (planes or helicopters) to be traveling at. After about six seconds, with the object heading toward the Sierra Mountain range, it suddenly and abruptly disappeared, like it simply just blipped out.
