What the heck is that?

This thing fell off my patio chair the other night and literally scared the daylights out of me.  That has got to be the ugliest moth/insect/bat/creature/alien I've ever seen.

I did the only rational thing I could think of - picked up my camera and took a few pictures of it.  From as far away as I could because I would scared it would bite me or something.  I would have screamed like a little girl if it even touched me!

Then, after a few minutes of bewilderment it opened its wings to reveal really pretty back portion of its wings.  I tried to muster up some strength to get a bit closer and when I did that sucker threw out some nasty green colored slime. 

I screamed so loud someone in my neighborhood probably thought there was a crime being committed. I didn't even come through the back door of the house because I was so scared this thing would get in the house, which meant the only logical thing to do was to run around to the front door and let myself in that way.  

Seriously though, now that it's gone and I've come to peace with the understanding that I don't know where it is, does anyone know what the heck that thing is?
