huge green light sphere with long white tail moving to ocean at high speed, no sound

April 05, 2011 La Jolla, California 20:20 hrs I was driving with my wife going home; on freeway 52 to west just before Genesse Ave. intersection; clear visibility at night, suddenly a big size light show up in front of us may be half mile away, the light was moving straight level fly then violent slightly going down and disappear behind the marine layer toward the ocean in approx 5 seconds.

The diameter of this light was about two Boeing 747 together, with a sphere shape and light green color also a long white tail about 6 to 8 times the diameter of the light. The speed was approx. 400 mph (base on commercial jets fly at that area is 200 mph; this light was going twice the speed of a commercial jet on approach to Lindbergh Field) at 500 feet altitude (same altitude with Mount Soledad)).

The light was moving with no sound.

We decide to go to Mount Soledad and over there we found other 3 people who saw exactly the same light.

As a FAA Licensed Aviation Technician and Engineer on Unmanned aircraft system (R&D) this light was not an advanced aircraft, lighted balloon or any air vehicle.
