Neon Green light moving fast threw low hanging clouds.

On August 15, 2011 the clouds where hanging low just above the mountains which are around 3,000 where I live in Clifton Forge, VA. I'm guessing at about 4,000 to 5,000 feet above the mountain I saw a streak of light shoot threw the clouds which lighted up the clouds and there was no noise that I could hear.

The color of the light going threw the clouds was a neon green color. At the time when this happened we had a small forest fire here in Clifton Forge and the forest rangers where on the mountain that the neon green light past over while they was working on putting the fire out threw out the night.

The light was moving from the north to the south towards the small town of Iron Gate, VA. So I'm wondering if anyone else saw this neon green light shoot across the night sky threw the low hanging clouds?
