bright green ball with red tail crosses over southcentral Pennsylvania

We are big fans of fireworks here, and we are 1 mile from Harrisburg International Airport, so we see everything from choppers to Air force One, but last night, November 8th, 2007, around 10:15pm(?) I saw a huge, round, bright, neon green ball with a bright red and distinct tail fall slowly across the sky, with a slight arch, from the north toward the south, southeast of the airport. From my vantage, it was the size of a nickel (which is no comet or firework Iíve ever seen). I followed it out my third floor window and watched it drop behind the tree line, then saw the horizon light up once, then about 2- 3 seconds later light up a second time. I neither heard nor felt any sound with the light.
