While heading west on I-80, between Youngstown and Cleveland, we encountered something we can't explain...

While heading east on I-80, between Youngstown and Cleveland, my business partner and I were heading back to Michigan after attending a comic convention. We were...well, making good time and I had looked at the clock on the dashboard and it read 10:22pm. My partner and I were discussing our trip when he said holy... you know... and I looked out the windshield. Above the cross over an over pass some distance back was a bright light with a light green outer ring. We figured it might have been an aircraft or a light on a tower, till it dropped straight down with out an arc, with increasing speed so fast that it looked like someone had taken a picture at night and moved the camera while the film was being exposed, giving it a solid line of light because it fell that fast. Then it did a 90 degree turn like it was a giant log ride and shot out at the horizon. Disappearing from sight. I looked at the clock on the dash after seeing it and it read 11:38 pm. I don't completely believe in this stuff, but after seeing that object fall and speed off, I can't think of anything it could've been. Nothing, that I know of short of a TOW missle, can arc in a 90 degree turn at that rate of decent without tearing itself to pieces. A TOW missle would have had a fire trail, instead of a white light with green outer ring. Then there is the matter of losing our time. Abducted, I don't know and don't think such a thing can or normally occurs, but we lost almost 45 minutes of time. The driver had been checking the time to gauge the trip back throught the whole trip and to keep from getting tickets. So what was it?? And what happened to the 45 minutes??
