Green fireball traveling north at a low altitude over Los Angeles

I was struck by the similarity of my siting and that of one reported in West Covina as 10/09/1955. West Covina is about 20 miles east of my siting.

I was playing catch with my brother in the parking lot of the apartment complex we were living in in northeast Los Angeles near the Glendale border. I was facing east (towards West Covina) when I saw a large green "meteor" traveling north towards the San Gabriel Mountains. I don't recall the exact day or time but it was a bright clear day and the "meteor" was very visible appearing low in the horizon and to move horizontally with the ground. I recall that there was a brief article in the Los Angeles Examiner that mentioned the siting.
