Green sphere seen make a V path in front of our car in Northern Maine.

We were driving up route 1 in Northern Maine around 10pm the week of Aug 7, 2003. We had to go to the bathroom and since there were no stores in that area we pulled over at a gravel pit. My husband, myself and my friend all went to the bathroom. We admired the stars since they were all so bright. I notice one that seemed to float downward but barely look like it was moving. My friend and I both saw it and thought it looked strange. Definitely not a plane or satellite since it was not moving much- but it did seem to move a little. We were a little freaked out. My husband did not see what we were looking at. We got back in the car and within 5 minutes my husband and I saw a green ball of light just above the phone lines in front of us. It looked like maybe the size of a basketball and was not really bright nor was it dim. It went down and then stopped and went up in a V shaped path. at the top of the V it vanished. We both agreed upon what we saw. We are both science teachers and could not come up with an explanation. It couldn't have been a meteor since it reversed direction and went up! My friend did not see it from the back seat since it was in front and above the car.
