What phenomenon is this? : meteorology

1 min read

Twice around my neighborhood in the past year I have witnessed a green luminescent “ball” suddenly appear in the sky at night just above the tree tops, fly a few yards slightly downward (but almost horizontally), then suddenly disappear without warning or a trace after 2-3 seconds, similar to a candle’s flame being blown out (but without noticable smoke). Their appearance was similar to a meteor, but there was no apparent impact of any sort, which seems improbable for objects of their size and proximity. My neighborhood is a residential area in central Florida, and the first “ball” was probably 1,000 feet from a large lake in December around midnight, while the second was above a road a few hundred feet away from a large cow field in August around 10:00, both mostly or entirely clear sky nights. The first appeared to be 3-6 feet in height, while the second looked to be 1-2 feet in height with a very thin white band spiraling around it and forming a tail.

After quite a bit of research I have been unable to identify any meteorological or otherwise environmental phenomenon that seem to exactly match these episodes, so any insight that can help satisfy my curiosity would be much appreciated.
