Green flame with tail in Hertford NC - was it a meteor?

We were driving south on Snug Harbor Rd.--between Rt 17 and Burnt Mill Rd. A round object came across the sky from an east to west direction. The object appeared to be on fire with a green flame and a tail. It was not very high in the sky, we could see alot of detail. It seemed to disappear - we did not see it drop (but since it was dark we would not have seen it fall once the flame went out).

Approx. latitude 36.119282 - Approx longitude -76.482885
