Duration: 5 seconds
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Extremely fast moving green light traveling south in Northern Virginia, then disapeared.

We were traveling on I-95 South in Northern Virginia when I noticed a relatively low altitude (~1000 feet) bright green light. The green light was also moving south at what I thought was a slow to moderate speed. About twice the speed of my vehicle.

My initial thought was that it was an airplane taking off from Reagan International airport. Then it just took off faster than anything I have ever seen and then just disappeared after about two or three seconds.

My wife and son both saw the exact same thing. None of us ever saw anything move so fast. We kept trying to come up with a rational explanation but could not.

The light did not leave a trail and it went from a slow speed to an extremely fast speed. The light was very bright and circular in shape.
