Duration: 1-2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Bright green light seen through cloudcover which lasted only a second or two, with no sound or sonic boom.

I was runnning with my grilfriend a little after dark on a cloudy night. I looked up to notice a bright green light behind some low lying clouds. No noise and traveling at incredible rate of speed, I expected to hear a sonic boom. Looked as though it was a meteor entering the atmopshere, but too cloudy to absolutely tell. Heading south. Parrallel flight path to Reagan National airport. Dissapeared over horizon. I had forgotten the exact date and time, but I noticed other reports of green fireball seen through cloudcover in Richmond and Baltimore.
