Strange Bright Green Light moving through sky near Modesto CA at 2:25 am... visible from I-5 on the left horizon. Very nearby

My fiance and I were returning to Salem, OR. from a vacation we took in Los Angeles, CA.

Driving N. on Interstate 5 we neared Modesto at approximately 2:25 am and it was very cloudy and had just got done raining. My fiance was sleeping on the passengers side when a neon green light shot from the clouds nearly straight down on the left and fell behind the hills. It was about the size of a silver dollar from my perspective. It traveled slower than a shooting star typicaly would.

When I returned home I got onto yahoo and typed in Green Light Modesto 2: am 2005 and got a hit from this site stating this has been seen before in the same area and at the same time.
