Yeah, that happens at this time of the year.
It is a bit of the Peresid meteor shower. A bit that got further into the atmosphere.
If you look around, you'll find that there are more reports of "green fireballs" at this time of the year, and during the Leonids.

A few years ago, I saw a green fireball form over a lake. It was not a meteor. I saw it appear about 300 feet over the lake, fly about 100 feet horizontally over the lake, and then it just disappeared mid-flight. I know it was not a meteor as it was too low to the ground and flew far too slowly. It flew close to the shore and wasn't too much higher than the tree-tops. It seemed about the size of a basketball. It was a dark lime green color.
I think some of these "green fireballs" are surely meteors. And some are equally surely not meteors. In the instances they are not meteors, then what are they? Aliens ships? UFO exhaust? A strange form of ball lightning? Could be anything. Fun to think about.
