Green, if I recall correctly, is oxygen being ionized by the meteor as it falls in our atmosphere.

For a more nuanced and complete view of green things in the sky:

A rare Steven King role in a Steven King story. I've also seen the comic book version.

I really want the background space plot to move up a few positions. Not ready for the A spot yet, but it should be the B now while the fascism stays at A for another year or two, then blammo! Space stuff is in A and we can move climate change to B and fascists get changed to roving Christian murder gangs C-plot.

Well, as long as it's green, and not a colour unlike any of the normal spectrum that is almost impossible to describe and which only by analogy can be called a colour at all, everything should be just fine. Pay no attention to any flora or fauna of monstrous shapes that may be present near the impact site.

A Martian flying saucer lands next to a closed fuel station on the edge of a small town. Two Martians stepped out to reconn the area, a Staff Sergeant and a Second Lieutenant, both about the height and width of a fuel pump.

The Second Lieutenant commands the fuel pump, in English, "Take us to your leader!"

The Staff Sergeant looks at the fuel pump, then back to the Lieutenant. «I don't think he's going to answer, sir,» he says in Martian

The Second Lieutenant again commands the fuel pump in English, "Take us to your leader, Private!"

The Staff Sergeant looks at the Lieutenant. «Sir, I don't think he's going to answer. I don't think he's alive.»

The Second Lieutenant stares at the Staff Sergeant. He yells in Martian, «I was second in my class in Earth languages at Martian Military Academy. We're in what they call North America, far enough north for the soldier to speak English. Do not contradict me in front of the enemy ever again!»

The Second Lieutenant pulls out his zap-pistol and once again commands the fuel pump in English, "Take us to your leader, Private Rock!"

The Staff Sergeant slips behind the spaceship for protection. The Second Lieutenant fires. BOOM! The whole fuel station blows up, knocking the Lieutenant into the side of the ship.

The Second Lieutenant finally comes to, thanks to the Staff Sergeant trickling water on the Lieutenant's face. «What happened?» he weakly asks.

«If I've told you straight-from-the-Academy kids once, I've told you a hundred times. You just don't go farking with a guy who can wrap his dick around his waist then stick it in his ear.»

Years ago I was in my kitchen with glass back doors facing west, I notice my housemate's cat looking up strangly at the door, so I go over and get down where she is and look up out the doors, then I witnessed a massive burning copper green fireball move across the sky, it looked like swirling plasma.  Now it wasn't fast and it was huge, and below the clouds (we were under a flight path to the airport and it was at about that level.)  Big green trail behind it.  Not sure how the cat knew it was coming because it couldn't see it when it first looked up.

Next day I at at my parents telling them about it, they were not believing me.  But when I got home I got a call from my mum saying "just after you left someone rang up the talk back radio asking if anyone else saw the massive green fireball?"

Now at this time I was in the depth of my UFO book collecting faze and payed way to much ($10) for a second hand self published "book" from the early 60's titled "Edge of Tomorrow" about a dude's trip in a spaceship.  He talked about seeing nuke missiles on the ship from different countries, they said they grab them if they go out of control and that they use "great big green fireballs" to help clean the atmosphere.

Anyway, the one I saw was the same colour as this one, but with a much longer tail and going horizontal rather than down.
