Large light traveling east to west, no sound, then flashed and instantly disappeared

Unidentified object/light in sky On Sunday night August 3 2008 between 10-10:30pm EST over a section of Baltimore City, Maryland I witnessed an extremely unusual event. We often see and hear helicopters as we are in an urban area and just a few blocks from a major shock trauma center so there is much activity. This night however as I sat on my deck I noticed to my left in the eastern sky what appeared to be a low helicopter heading west, the bright light on it however was larger than normal and was of a light green color which I’ve never seen in the three years of living here. As it got closer to being overhead it appeared to be oval shaped and I realized there was absolutely NO NOISE, no engine sound, and no propeller sound. All at once the light seemed to flash one time and go dark, completely dark, nothing, not a sound. I mean it just went out as if someone had turned off a switch. It was incredible. And in the sky where the light had just been extinguished, there was nothing but clear sky.

Can anybody give me any explanation for this?

Thank you.
