I saw a green glowing fireball.

I was sitting out on our patio with my wife. We live 6 miles south of town and night viewing is very good. We were chatting and something caught the peripheral vision in the upper corner of my left eye. I looked up just in time to see a green glowing ball descending very rapidly. I saw it for perhaps 1-2 seconds and then it disappeared down into the valley behind our house.

I then looked up into the sky and saw what appeared to be the remnants of a smoke trail high overhead. The moon was a super moon so the trail was easy to see. It appeared to line up with the path I think the object took. However, there were a lot of jet contrails in the sky that night. My wife and I had been talking about that, and thought maybe the bright moon was just showing them more easily than normal. So I canít be certain that what I saw was the trail.

Perspective was tricky, and I found myself wondering if it was actually several miles away and larger than I initially thought. It is impossible to say. But I have never seen anything like this before.
