Heading southbound on 5, coming up towards the Del Mar racetrack I saw a glowing green object heading inland roughly 20,000 feet above the highway at a speed similar to that of a missle. There was a very small glowing blue flame behind the object resembling a road flare. The object didn't appear to be traveling in an arch or at a speed greater than sound. After a few seconds, the object seemed to break apart slightly finally become consumed by the bluish glow until it simply fizzled away.
