I saw a green fireball travelling across the night sky towards earth.

I was inside my apartment on the third floor of my building, sitting in my living room and watching TV when a bright green, moving object caught my eye from the night sky, outside the window. I got up and walked towards the window to watch it. I was a large, green fireball. It moved horizontally but with a slight downward trajectory towards the earth. I thought it was a meteor and waited to see if there would be an explosion or the sound of fire trucks. I heard sirens and turned on the news but there were no reports in the media. I've seen shooting stars but I've never seen anything as large and green as this.
