bright green intensely glowing ball 'falls' rapidly from the sky and then zig zags away

I was driving alone at night in the countryside just after 10:00 p.m. There was no traffic near me for about 5 minutes before and 5 minutes after the sighting. The sky was dark and filled with sparkling stars, then high up and off to my right hand side, out of the corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of something bright in the sky. As I directed my attention to it, I thought, "oh, what a beautiful falling star!" I quickly braked my vehicle to slow and watch it and it came darting through the sky like falling stars do, then I saw it was a large, intensely bright, glowing, round,green ball, which grew bigger and bigger as it come rapidly closer and closer, and I thought, "Oh my god, whatever this is, it's going to crash right beside me... then suddenly it abruptly zig zagged off horizontally like a "zee" and then shot upward and disappeared from sight. By this time I had stopped my vehicle. I looked and looked trying to find where it had gone, but its disappearance was extremely rapid and I saw it no more.

Shocked and unnerved, I didn't tell anyone about it for several weeks. It is at the suggestion of my son, I am making this report.
