Blue green glowing ball dropping quickly from sky

On my way home from work at 1:17 on 2/17/04/ in the morning as I was driving up the mountain I saw a blue-green (with more green) glowing ball in the sky in the upper left side of my windshield. It was probably 2/3 the size of a full moon. It dropped down at a very fast rate with increased momentum as it fell. It was like an object falling after having been thrown up in the air. (after the peak and arc of the throw how it comes back down).

Then it went out of my view on the other side of the mountain. I heard no sound and saw no trail left behind. I was traveling east on Rt. 211 going over massanutten mountain between New Market and Luray (Shenandoah and Page counties).
