Sighting Details

I walked on to my front porch, which faces East, and saw a flash, about 35degrees the horizon. At first i thought shooting star. Only it looked like a green orb, not off in the sky but pretty close to me, and was not moving fast enough to be a meteor(ite). and was basically falling at a constant speed, not unlike a flare or the end of a large firework. Only there was no noise and it gave off no smoke or sparks or any sort of trail. It fell straight down, I'm talking perpindicular, no variation or blowing with the wind, and the light it gave off was a constant orb which never variated and didn't appear to illuminate my surroundings. From my vantage I would have to guesstimate the orb of light was about the size one of the big medicine balls. It fell from what I would guess to be about 400 ft high, and appeared to me to be about 4 streets over, so maybe like 800 ft away. It took about 2.5 seconds from when I looked at it to when it would have landed. It fell behind the treeline and at the time it would have landed, there was no crash or flash or anything. I do not know if it was moving around before I went outside (there have been similar sightings in the same neighborhood), but I'm fairly sure what caught my attention was a flash, so it may have actually somehow formed, or what have you, while I could see it. It was unlike anything I've ever seen and I'm a pretty avid stargazer. Could have been a drone, but the light it gave off was eerie and not like an LED or flare.
