Fireball/meteor flying below clowd cover East to West

I was on my way to work, waiting for the traffic signal change at the intersection of Hwy. 9 & Hwy. 92, facing west. I saw a green ball of light similar to meteors I have witnessed in the military, however unlike the meteor I saw(which was large & had a tail), this ball was low at about 9,000 feet, guessing by the high cloud cover. It was well below the clouds. It flew due West from the East. It was a clear bright ball flying faster than any aircraft I know of, but not as fast as a "shooting star". It didn’t have a tail or anything trailing it. >From my viewpoint it was the size of a streetlight, as compared in contrast of a full moon. This ball was perfectly round and very bright green. It didn’t make any turns before going out of view, it could have been a meteor but I seriously can’t believe it was. It is also hard for me to believe it is something alien, but I would like to know what it is other than "it’s just another meteor".
