Shape: Fireball
Duration: 2 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object left a trail, There was an aura or haze around the object
Small green fireball/light shoots straight down.

At about 9:30pm on Feb 28th, 2014, my friend and I were driving north on the Atlantic City Expressway and both noticed a green light, more like a fireball. It was small but looked to be just above the tree line.

At first we noticed it moving parallel to the ground for a split second but then almost immediately shot straight down on a 90 degree angle. When it shot down it moved very quickly but not at the same rate, slowing down and speeding up, but all within about 2 seconds time.

I am describing this as a fireball since it had a small tail on the end when it shot down. This could not have been a meteor since it was no more then 50 feet off the ground and the way in which it moved.
