Bright green light in the shape of a comet fell from sky and disappeared about 20 degrees from the horizon

I just happened to look up out of my west facing office window, when I saw a bright falling object, a lime green light, shooting down from the sky at about a 40 degree angle to the earth. It looked like a bright green falling star, but only about 20 miles away. It seemed to burn out about 20 degrees from the horizon, possibly over the ocean. At the same distance from me, a planes lights would be about 20 times smaller.
