Light over San Fernando Valley.

Sitting in back yard, when I heard a low flying prop plane, looked up and saw what appeared to me to be a firefly trailing the plane, it moved very fast and popped around the sky like an insect would, it went straight at first, then made a "U" shaped turn, i lost the object for second but caught it further to my right, it bobbed up and down and then moved at a speed that was to fast for me to see. it did make a trail of light but only as any light would that moves fast. the light that it emitted was similar to a star but was greener in tint. i have never seen fireflies in l.a. before and as far as i can research there are no species of firefly native to california.
