A green colored sphere appeared out of nowhere and fell straight to the ground

As I was driving eastward on the Capital Beltway (I-495) in the vicinity of Silver Spring, MD I saw in the sky to the Northest of Washington DC a green colored sphere. I saw it for only a second, it seemed to appear out of nowhere and then immediately drop straight to the ground. It looked extrememly large, and I fully expected to hear or see an explosion when it reached the ground. I didn't see any such explosion. I kept looking to the sky as I was driving and when I looked back at the road, I saw I was beginning to swerve out of my lane. Several other cars ahead of me where also swerving out of their lanes as if they were also watching the sphere. I heard no sounds during the sighting.
