Quickly moving bluish/green light w/ tail. Meteor?

I was walking my dog. I noticed my shadow on the snow like there was a quick flash of light. I looked up to the basically clear sky and saw a blue-green fireball with a slight tail moving N to S very quick. I don't think it was a shooting star because it was too low. No noise. No arc like a fire work. Completely straight line. It was about at a 45 degree angle from me and about the length of a pinky finger at arm's length. Entire event from flashing to light extinguishing was about 1.5 seconds. I saw it for over .5 sec before it extinguished. It seemed close. I dont think it was any craft but probably a meteor, just thought you'd be interested. I am a 21 yr old college senior.
