Greenish bright light that moved up and down several degrees then rapidly fell towards earth

While sitting outside my condo I always watch the airliners ascending from Reagan National Airport. Tonight I heard the sound of a jet fighter patrolling high in the sky. At about 9:30 PM I was looking east, up at about 40 degrees altitude when I saw a greenish tinted bright light that was moving just perceptibly up and down in the sky. After it moved up and down and up and down again it rapidly fell straight down. My 6-story high building then obscured it further from view. I might guess that the light was 1 to 2 miles distant, based on its size and brightness.
