Circular green object entering our atmosphere turned into light storm of energy.????

My work crew of three and I had just pulled into our hotel, when we saw what looked to be a round green object racing towards earth. At about 20' from the horizon at my vantage point it had a green fireball around it, I would estimate it to be within five miles of my location easy. From my vantage point it looked to be as big as a house and at about 5' from the horizon it lit the whole sky lit up with light.

Then a kind of trace of lightning looking light coming into it "not away from it". If it had been a meteor or something else, there isn't a doubt in my mind we would have heard it impact earth. It seemed to have just stopped. It was like it had an intelligence about it not just some dumb rock entering our atmosphere. The night tonight is clear and the background is solid black. It was just one very large object.
